ABOUT US & EVENT

While the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary’s 8th 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 human sex trafficking, and support veterans and youth enrichment in metro Atlanta.
