The 5K run/walk starts and ends at the Zaban Park campus at 5342 Tilly Mill Road, where a family fitness fair follows the race.
“I encourage runners and walkers of all experience levels to come out and enjoy the Harris Jacobs Dream Run,” said Kitty Jacobs, Harris’ widow. “It is certainly a tribute to my Harris, but also a way for friends and family members to come together and race or walk through beautiful neighborhoods.”
The Harris Jacobs Dream Run honors the memory of Harris Jacobs, a past president of the Marcus JCC, and raises money for special-needs programming at the center.
“I was married to a super hero,” Jacobs said. “Harris gave so much to the Atlanta community, as well as to every Jewish organization, and he made it very easy for me to lend my hand wherever it was needed. But, because of health reasons, I haven’t been very active in the community in the past few years.”
The fee is $30 in advance or $35 on race day for adults or $15 for children. Visit www.atlantajcc.org/HDR or 678-812-3981.
