Description

The Daffodil Dash is a 5K/1mile run/walk in memory of the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust and in support for children who continue to suffer in the face of humanitarian crises in the world today.
Your support helps create the worldwide Living Holocaust memorial as we aspire to plant 1.5 million daffodils in memory of the children. Funds raised support Holocaust education as well as “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 that provides medical, dental and home care for Atlanta survivors.
The Daffodil Dash is part of Genocide Prevention and Awareness month in Georgia.

WHO WE ARE: 
Am Yisrael Chai is a non profit Holocaust Education and Genocide Awareness Organization. The Daffodil Project, is a project of Am Yisrael Chai that aspires to build a worldwide Living Holocaust Memorial by planting 1.5 million daffodils in memory of the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust and in support for children who continue to suffer in humanitarian crises in the world today.

WHY DAFFODILS?
The shape and color of the daffodils represent the Yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust. Daffodils represent our poignant hope for the future. They are resilient and return with a burst of color each Spring. The daffodils also honor those who survived the Holocaust and went on to build new lives after this dark and difficult period. 

LEARN LESSONS FROM THE PAST AND ACT FOR THE FUTURE:
We need to speak out against injustice, hatred, bigotry, senseless violence in our world today.  
     
Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor and famous author of the book “Night” states – “How can a person, whether religious or secular, not be moved by compassion? And above all, how can anyone who remembers remain silent?”
