The Daffodil Dash is a 1mile & 5K Run/Walk in memory of the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust and in support for children suffering in the face of genocide and other humanitarian crises in the world today. The Daffodil Dash raises awareness and funds for Holocaust Education and Genocide Awareness. Proceeds benefit Am Yisrael Chai, a non profit Holocaust Education and Awareness organization, as well as the “Kids for Kids”, “Raising South Sudan” and “Agahozo Shalom”, organizations helping children and families in remote villages in Darfur, South Sudan and Rwanda. The race also supports the Atlanta Holocaust Survivor fund, providing medical, dental and home care for aging Holocaust survivors. The race will be held on Sunday, March 29, 2020 in Dunwoody. A Holocaust Survivor and a refugee from Darfur will bring their messages of hope, survival and the importance of tolerance.
We will also be collecting school supplies for school children in Clarkston, a city with a high number of refugee families.
