Harris Jacobs Dream Run

The Harris Jacobs Dream Run was created more than 20 years ago to serve our community with a fun, active, and family-friendly event that honors the memory of a past president of the MJCCA and influential member of the Atlanta Jewish community, Harris Jacobs. Proceeds support the Blonder Family Department for Special Needs, a unique and welcoming home where individuals of all backgrounds and abilities can socialize, learn, grow, and deepen their connections to one another and the community.

Check out the results for this year’s race!
