The Daffodil Dash is a 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 Holocaust survivors. The race will be held at Brook Run Park (4770 N. Peachtree Rd, Dunwoody GA 30338) on Sunday, April 7th, 2024 at 9 a.m., and will also offer virtual options. This means you can sign up to run, walk, bike or exercise from anywhere, anytime between March 15 and April 7th, 2024.
