Cupid’s is a “brief” fun-run that takes place in the middle of a BIG party.

Undies are encouraged, but it may not be for everyone – so whether you start a team for your friends, join a team or run solo, just come out, have a blast and raise some money for NF research!

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a cinematic exploration of Jewish experience — Jewish culture and history, life in Israel, and the work of Jewish artists — particularly where these stories intersect with other communities both here in Atlanta and around the world. Seeking to use the power of film to both entertain and educate, AJFF challenges conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing the Jewish and global communities.
