2024 Kettle Krush

2024 Kettle Krush Image


We are excited to be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of

The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary Kettle Krush 5K run/walk!

While Kettle Krush takes place 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 “krush” poverty, homelessness, and human trafficking, while supporting veterans and youth enrichment in metro Atlanta.
