For 25 years, the TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot has been a Thanksgiving tradition. Strong partners, such as our title sponsor TXU Energy, help to make this event possible.

“We’re proud to support an organization like BakerRipley that has built a legacy on empowering Texans,” said Kim Campbell, Senior Manager of Customer Advocacy. “The TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot allows us to help this great organization and stay involved with the community. We are beyond delighted to be the title sponsor of this event for the 13th consecutive year.”

Giving back to the people they serve is one of TXU Energy’s core values and an important part of their business culture.

“We know Texans appreciate our focus on providing innovative products and services to power their day-to-day lives, but TXU Energy is also invested in strengthening the communities where our customers live, work and play,” said Campbell. “That’s why we love being a part of the TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot. It supports programs that promote healthy neighborhoods and help people earn, learn, and belong.”

But the TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot isn’t the only way that TXU Energy partners with BakerRipley. Throughout the year TXU Energy employees volunteer at our community centers and events. We also work together to make sure low-income customers have air-conditioning during the hot summer months.

“Through our TXU Energy AidSM program, BakerRipley is here to lend TXU Energy customers a little extra help when they can’t make ends meet by providing bill payment assistance,” said Campbell.

BakerRipley is proud to partner with TXU Energy to serve the Houston region and bring you the TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot, a fun Thanksgiving event that has a little something for everyone. The avid runner can enjoy one of our timed races, your family can enjoy the 5K together at your own pace, and children can participate in the Kids Run. There will also be a pre-race and post-race area that also includes music, food, and a Kids’ Zone.
