Scott’s Run – Run For Love of Your Neighbor
Lace up those shoes and run to support the work of Catholic Charities Atlanta!
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 race proceeds go directly to benefit Catholic Charities Atlanta Immigration Legal Services Program.
In addition to a myriad of social services, Catholic Charities Atlanta (CCA) provides low-cost, quality legal immigration services to more than 6,000 clients annually. A multi-lingual staff specializing in immigration law provides comprehensive immigration legal services to help eligible individuals and families obtain their permanent legal status, assist clients with the naturalization process, and provide legal representation during deportation proceedings. CCA specializes in assisting survivors of domestic violence, abandoned or neglected foreign children, detained clients, and victims of trafficking and crimes.
