Thanksgiving Day

6 years ago

This morning, I am participating in Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot in Austin.  It's the 21st year for the Turkey Trot and my third year running.

The Turkey Trot benefits Caritas of Austin.  Caritas is an agency that provides rent, food, and utility assistance for low income people in Austin. 

This race is my way of honoring Thanksgiving.  Helping those less fortunate, even in a small way, is the best way I can think of to give thanks. 

As you gather today with loved ones, give thanks for your blessings and send up an extra prayer for those in need this holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!!

Love,
Jerri
