Kettle Krush Race In Place

Kettle Krush 2021


While The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary’s 7th annual Kettle Krush 5K run/walk is in a “different season” than Christmas, the purpose is for the “same reason.” Through this event, SAWA strives to raise awareness for The Salvation Army and to “krush” poverty, homelessness, and sex trafficking in our area, and support veterans and youth enrichment. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, The Salvation Army needs support for its initiatives even more than ever! Since we are all practicing social distancing currently as requested, this year’s event called Race in Place will now be broadcast on Facebook Live on May 15.
