21st Annual TXU Energy Turkey Trot

Do something healthy and helpful on Thanksgiving by turning out for the 21st Annual TXU Energy Turkey Trot. Proceeds from the day benefit Neighborhood Centers and Sheltering Arms Senior Services, two nonprofit organizations that serve families and seniors in Houston. Runners, wheelchair athletes, walkers, families and children are all invited to participate (you can enter the competitive 10K or 5K, or make it more of a fun run). Not in the mood to run? That’s fine, because the racers will need plenty of spectators to line the route and cheer them on. Stick around after the races for a post-event party.

Registration starts at 6 a.m. with staggered starting times from 7:20 through 9 a.m. Dillard’s, 4925 Westheimer. For information, call 713-669-5317 or visit turkeytrot.shelteringarms.org/events. Free for spectators.
