Kettle Krush 5k

While the Salvation Army's 2nd Annual Kettle Krush 5K and Fun Run is in a "different season" than Christmas,the purpose is for the "same reason."Through this event, The Salvation Army is raising money and awareness to "krush" poverty and to provide the resources that people need to become self-sufficient and productive members of our community.

Thanks to our 2019 Title Sponsor!
