The owners of ThunderCloud Subs recently presented Caritas of Austin with a check for $295,000, the entirety of the proceeds from the 25th anniversary ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot. This year’s check brings the Trot’s cumulative 25-year donation to nearly $3 million—$2,783,375, to be exact.
The ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot, Austin’s beloved Thanksgiving tradition, is the largest five-mile run in Texas. About 19,400 people participated this year, and $15.20 of each registration fee is donated to Caritas.
Mike Haggerty, co-owner of ThunderCloud Subs and run director of the Trot says: “We are honored to receive the continued support of the Austin community for our event and for Caritas of Austin.”
“Caritas is grateful for the longstanding partnership with the Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot,” says Jo Kathryn Quinn, executive director of Caritas. “Both ‘Austin originals’ have been pairing up for this Thanksgiving tradition for 25 years, and the money raised has served some of Austin’s most vulnerable families since those early days. I am amazed and my heart is warmed by the loyal support of Austinites for our work,” Quinn says.
