Admin History/Bio
The 1993 Walk for Israel was held on Monday, May 24. Its informal slogan was "$45 for 45 Years," in recognition of Israel's 45th anniversary. Participants who raised the minimum of $45 received a free t-shirt. The t-shirts for the event had a different slogan than "$45 for 45 Years"; they read, "Building Our Community Together." When participants handed in their funds before the event, they were also eligible for other prizes including roller blades, Blue Jays' tickets and bicycles. Over 6,000 people took part in the Walk and over $150,000 were raised.
The 1993 Walk was co-chaired by Judy Engel and Alan Winer and coordinated by UJA staff person Ronit Climan. The route started in Earl Bales Park, went south to Wilson and over to Avenue Road, then south to Eglinton, back to Bathurst via Chaplin Crescent, then north on Bathurst to the Festival at the Bathurst JCC.
This year, the Walk was supplemented by other "athons": a dance-a-thon for youth co-sponsored by BBYO and the Walk and an aerobathon organized by the JCC and the Walk. The aerobathon drew 40 participants. Additionally, as in years past, students at the Eitz Chaim Day School held a Learnathon, which raised $18,000.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains textual records, photographs and design products for the 1993 Walk for Israel and the Festival. The files are arranged by function, in this order: Walk oversight (the Cabinet Committee and chairs), recruitment and incentives, logistics, publicity and design, sponsorship, the Walk event itself, the Festival and post-event evaluation.

File also contains a flyer and materials related to designing and ordering the giveaways (hats and t-shirts).
