Catholic Charities Atlanta (CCA) will be hosting “Run to Serve” a 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run in Blackburn Park in Brookhaven, GA on October 23, 2023.

The whole community is welcome to attend and encourage families with children to come out and run together. There will be post-race food, activities and music.
