Please join us for the Asheville Jewish Community Center’s 2nd annual JCC Hanukkah 8K! The race begins at 9:15 am on December 9 at the Asheville JCC, 236 Charlotte Street. Runners and walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate.
The event is a community-wide celebration of the upcoming 8 day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights. Proceeds of the JCC Hanukkah 8K will benefit Shalom Children’s Center.
Race day registration is 7-9 A.M. on Sunday morning, December 9, at the Jewish Community Center.
In conjunction with the Hanukkah 8K, there will be a FREE kids’ race starting at 8:30 am where kids will be challenged to run 8 laps around the JCC parking lot. Those kids that raise $25 or more in pledges will receive a t-shirt. You can sponsor a child in the Latke Loop HERE. Please check the box “dedicate donation” and indicate In Honor Of (Child’s Name) and highlight Hanukkah 8K and Latke Loop as the campaign.
