TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot
During the TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot, which has been held now for more than two decades, designated streets around Houston transform into a moving celebration of goodwill and charity. Competitive and non-competitive 5K, 10K, and kid routes welcome most types of runners, walkers, and wheelchair drivers, though surprisingly turkeys and other forms of poultry are ineligible. Proceeds from the event go to a division of Neighborhood Centers, a non-profit organization committed to the health and well-being of older adults and their caregivers.
