Providing groceries for someone in need was rewarding for Salvation Army volunteer Allie Baxter, 18, but she wanted to do more. She wanted to get more people involved with helping the poor and to show how much fun it can be.

The result is the annual Red Kettle Run, now in its fourth year. The 5K event for walkers and runners will return to Zorinsky Lake, 3808 S. 156th St., at 9 a.m. on Oct. 12. Participants need not register in advance. They simply bring at least 10 food items or $10 to donate to the Salvation Army’s food pantry.
