Quiet Waters Park
Don your favorite Christmas attire and run, walk or roll to “krush” poverty and homelessness at The Salvation Army of Broward County’s Kettle Krush 5K presented by PwC set for July 24 at 7 a.m. at Quiet Waters Park (401 Powerline Road in Deerfield Beach). WPLG Local 10 SoFlo Health’s Hunter Franqui will serve as the special guest host for the fourth annual event.

The Salvation Army serves over 50,000 Broward County residents, every year, and more than 70% of its funding comes directly from the community – individuals, groups and businesses.
The race is named after The Salvation Army’s iconic Red Kettles which are staffed during the holidays to collect funds for families in need. Last year, The Salvation Army raised $320,215, more than a 33% increase over the same period last year, in less than five weeks in November and December. The Salvation Army of Broward County also distributed 7,566 gifts to 1,114 families with 2,483 children at 2020’s drive-through Holiday Toy Shop.
The racecourse at Quiet Waters Park is sanctioned by the USATF, and the race will be timed by AccuChipUSA, Inc. Awards will be given to runners in “Top 3” categories and age groups. A FREE commemorative race t-shirt will be given to all registrants.
