2017 TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot


Your efforts fuel a movement. You have the power to affect real change for half a MILLION people in the Houston area.

The TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot is the second largest foot race in Houston and has been a family tradition for nearly 25 years. The event supports Neighborhood Centers– the largest community development organization in Texas.

Neighborhood Centers has been around for more than a century. We build strong communities by investing in the strengths of people. We connect hardworking families to opportunities by linking them to education, job training, economic support such as free tax preparation and business development. We also have one of the only dementia-specific day centers for seniors. This holistic approach is how we keep Houston a place of opportunity.
