To: Pastors and Parish Administrators
CC: Parish Secretaries and Bulletin Editors
From: Melissa Rubsam, Special Events and Community Outreach Coordinator

Lace up your shoes and prepare for some fall fun! Come run (or walk) with us on September 29, 2018 at the Historic Fourth Ward (near Ponce City Market and the Atlanta Beltline)!

Scott’s Run began in honor of Scott Starratt, a Marietta native and officer of the INS (now called Immigration and Customs Enforcement). He stood out among his peers for his kindness and compassion for foreign children who ended up in detention. Scott died in an automobile accident in 2001, and his colleagues established this annual event with Catholic Charities Atlanta to support individuals and families in need. All proceeds directly benefit Catholic Charities Atlanta’s Immigration Legal Services Program.
