About Run For Shelter

Run For Shelter 5K is a community race to fight against homelessness one step at a time. All proceeds benefit The Salvation Army’s Home Sweet Home program, a homeless housing program created by The Salvation Army Metro Atlanta. The vision of The Salvation Army’s Home Sweet Home program is to meet the needs of homeless families by providing an immediate avenue back to independent living. This will be accomplished by providing in-home case management in a holistic manner that serves to educate and empower families, to help them regain ties to the community and sustain permanent, stable housing.

Salvation Army Launches Kettle Krush 5K in Piedmont Park


2015 Kettle Krush251

Over 200 runners and volunteers joined The Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta on Saturday, May 30, for the first Kettle Krush 5K in beautiful Piedmont Park. The inaugural race celebrated the 125th year of The Salvation Army’s presence in the Atlanta community.

The Kettle Krush 5K, Different Season Same Reason was created to bring attention to the much-needed social services to individuals and families in dire need throughout the year—not just the Christmas season. In the last year, The Salvation Army provided over 120,000 nights of shelter to men, women, children, and veterans and served 168,509 meals to those who were hungry and homeless in our community. We also assisted over 38,500 families who were in a crisis.
