Admin History/Bio
The 1983 Walk for Israel on Sunday, May 1st had a record turnout of 17,000 people. It was chaired by veteran Walk chairs Jerry Panet and Verne Chelin, and the cause was the construction of a community centre for Beit Dagon. Attractions along the 25 kilometre route included Big Bird, a Smurf, and Miss Canada. A draw was held for anyone who raised at least $50; the grand prize was two round trip tickets to Israel courtesy of El Al airlines. The Walk route began at the Bathurst and Sheppard plaza, and the day finished with a Lag B'Omer celebration in the parking lot of the BJCC. In these years, the Walk began around 7:30 in the morning, with volunteers arriving to set up as early as 4:30 am.
