Hanukkak 8k – December 9, 2018 – Asheville NC

This has been postponed until December 16, 2018

The race begins at 9:15am at the Asheville JCC, 236 Charlotte Street. Runners and Walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate. (Day of registration begins at 7:00 am at the JCC)

The event is a community wide celebration of the upcoming 8 day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights. In acknowledgement of the giving season, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Eblen Charities to help provide emergency assistance to those in the community needing help with their winter fuel costs. We are proud to celebrate the holiday (a little early) in this way with as many runners, walkers and volunteers as possible.

For younger children, preceding the race start (at 8:30am) there will be a \’race\’ that is FREE to participate, where the youngsters will be challenged to run 8 laps around the JCC parking lot. Those who raise $24 or more in pledges will receive a t-shirt. For more information about the \’Latke Loop\’, contact rochelle@jcc-asheville.org
