Admin History/Bio
The Israel Funwalk '99, "Let's Step Together," was held on Sunday, May 30, 1999. It was chaired by Harvey Cooperberg, Fran Grundman and Corey Mandell. The UJA staff person was Naomi Cohen. Similar to 1998, the Walk started from Nathan Phillips Square, this year with a big kickoff Carnival there. The route led through Old Jewish Toronto through three checkpoints to the entrance of Ontario Place, where participants could continue on to the Festival. For the first time, there was also a shorter Bub 'n' Zaid-a-thon to encourage multi-generation families to walk together. More than 500 volunteers and approximately 15,000 people participated in the "Funwalk '99", making it the largest turnout the Walk for Israel had ever had.

Scope and Content
File contains a schedule for school presentations, correspondence, form letters, a calendar, school population numbers, minutes of a Youth Recruitment Committee meeting and samples of older form letters.
Notes
Lists of recent graduates with their phone numbers were culled from this file.
Much of the correspondence concerns the conflict in scheduling the Walk on a Sunday when supplementary schools have their classes and students must miss either school or the Walk. The frustration of school principals leads some to refuse to allow any promotion of the Walk in their school.
