21st Annual Harris Jacobs Dream Run in Dunwoody - Sun May 4th at MJCCA Zaban Park


Twenty-one years ago, Harris Jacobs, a former Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA) President and active member in the Atlanta Jewish Community, had a dream. His dream was for every child, regardless of their family’s financial situation, to be able to participate in the MJCCA’s many programs and services. This race serves our community by providing a fun, active and family friendly event that honors Harris’ memory and dream.
