Admin History/Bio
UJA Federation’s Walk with Israel was first held in May 1970, when it was called the UJA Walkathon. The first Walk was organized quickly with no advance publicity, yet it still raised $55,000. In the early years, funds raised in the Walk went into UJA’s Israel Special Fund. Since then, the money has supported particular projects in Israel that often involve children, since children are the main fundraisers in the event. The Walk with Israel has grown into the largest event in the Toronto Jewish community, with over 20,000 people participating as volunteers or walkers, and funds raised reaching as high as $400,000. The event has had several name changes since 1970: Walk for Israel (1978-1993); Community March for Israel (1994-1996); Israel Funwalk (1998-2002); and the current name, Walk with Israel.
The Walk with Israel is one of the programs mounted by the Annual Campaign department of UJA Federation. It is planned by a Cabinet Committee, with one or two laypeople as chairs, and numerous sub-committees. The main UJA staff undertaking the planning and execution is the Walk Coordinator. Each year, sub-committees are formed for recruitment, logistics, marketing and public relations, the Festival, food, entertainment, etc. The Walk also involves many outside entities: companies approached for prizes, donations or sponsorship; entertainment groups; the Toronto police force, which provides traffic control, marshalling and a parade permit; city government, for park use permits and outdoor signage; community groups mounting displays; costumed character rental companies; and manufacturers of the t-shirts, hats and buttons produced each year for Walk participants.
In addition to being a major fundraiser, the Walk fashioned itself initially as a fitness challenge to children and athletes, with a route as long as 31 kilometres in 1976. Over the years, this length has been reduced significantly, with the event evolving into a more manageable and family-oriented event. In the last decade, with periods of tension overseas, it has been framed as a demonstration of solidarity with Israel. Alongside the main event, alternative fundraisers such as a large Raffle, Dance-a-thon, Aerob-a-thon and Learn-a-thon for Eitz Chaim day schools, have been held in some years to encourage more people to contribute. Incentives for those who collect sponsors have grown over the years, from free t-shirts to a succession of prizes depending on the amount of funds raised. The grand prize draw for many years was two El Al airline tickets to Israel.
The location of the Walk has moved from the Bathurst Street 'corridor' of the Jewish community, to a downtown route that for some years went through the historic Jewish neighbourhood of Kensington Market and more recently, begins and ends at Coronation Park by the lakeshore and winds around the downtown streets. There is now also a kick-off party at the Walk’s starting point. Since 1984, the Walk has culminated in a big festival, featuring rides, petting zoos, a barbecue, musical entertainment, clowns and other attractions. This was usually held in a park or the BJCC parking lot. When the Walk route moved downtown, the Festival shifted to Ontario Place, and more recently, it has taken place on the CNE grounds by the lakeshore. Since 2007, the Festival has been sponsored by RioCan, and 'yogen fruz' became a major sponsor of the Walk in 2008. Other Walk sponsors have included Roots Canada (supplier of t-shirts), Shopper’s Drug Mart, Henry’s camera centre, Canada Trust, National Bank Financial Group, and the Canadian Zionist Federation.
Scope and Content
Sub-series contains records that document the planning and coordination of the Walk for Israel each year, as well as photographs and other records from the day itself and post-walk evaluation and wrap-up activities. The records include meeting notices, agendas and minutes, information sheets, lists, schedules, sitemaps, correspondence, school presentations, permits, press releases, design work, invoices, flyers, and photographs. Materials distibuted to participants include walker passports that had to be verified at each checkpoint, sponsor books, collection envelopes, tickets and other ephemera.
Most of the records have been arranged by year, broken down by function, in the following order: Walk oversight (the Walk Committee and chairs); recruitment of participants; volunteers; logistics such as route and police/security coverage; publicity and public relations, design of memorabilia (i.e. hats); sponsorship and prizes; financial management; the Walk event itself; the Festival; related fundraisers, particularly the Eitz Chaim Day Schools Learnathon; and post-event evaluation. The Festival records document the planning of food, entertainment, displays, amusements, and volunteers, and include photographs taken on the day of the event.
Sub-series 17-1 also includes individual files containing photographs from ranges of years. These were added to this series after the major portion of the "Walk" records had already been processed.

Admin History/Bio
In 1977, the 8th annual UJA Walkathon was part of the UJA of Metropolitan Toronto's Maccabiah '77 games. The Maccabiah is a "Jewish Olympics" that offers Jewish athletes a premier opportunity to compete and, more generally, encourages the community to participate in a day of sports and activity. The games were first held in Toronto in 1970. For Maccabiah '77, the Walk took place alongside a fundraising run for UJA-B'nai Brith and a YM-YWHA Swimathon. One feature of this Walk were amateur radio stations set up at the checkpoints for walkers to send out messages. The route took participants from Baycrest Centre, downtown to the Bloor JCC, then north to Bathurst and Sheppard.

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.

Admin History/Bio
The Israel Funwalk 2000 took place on Sunday, May 28, 2000. As in recent years, it began with a "MEGA [Mandell Entertainment Group Amusements] Carnival" at Nathan Phillips Square. That was followed by a route including Old Jewish Toronto, leading to Trinity Bellwoods Park and then south to Ontario Place, where the Funwalk Festival was held. The co-chairs of the Walk were Fran Grundman and Harvey Cooperberg. For the first time, an Entertainment Coordinator was specially named: Corey Mandell, a longtime participant in the planning and entertainment for the Walk. The UJA coordinator was Naomi Cohen. A new feature of the event this year was a 5 kilometre Fun Run for adults with its own attractions and incentives.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains photographs, a small amount of textual records and 2 videos from the Israel Funwalk 2000 and the Festival. The files are arranged by function, in this order: recruitment of participants, logistics, publicity and design, the Walk event itself and the Festival. One video is a promotional one used for recruitment in schools; the other is a "TV spot" featuring Michael Landsberg on the TSN Sportsdesk, also promoting the Funwalk. The videos feature still photographs from past Walks and information about the route, entertainment, Festival and incentives.
Notes
Physical description note: Includes approximately 390 photographs, 1 t-shirt and 2 videocassettes.

Admin History/Bio
In 2001, the Israel Funwalk was held on Victoria Day Monday, May 21st. The chairs this year were Abe Glowinsky and Elyza Litwin Polsky, and Naomi Cohen was once again the staff coordinator. An adult 7 kilometre Fun Run commenced 15 minutes before the Walk and followed the same route. While the Walk had had a Web presence as early as 1999, 2001 was the first time online registration was offered. The route also changed this year, going south from Nathan Phillips Square to Wellington Street, then west to Blue Jays Way and north to the second checkpoint at Alexandra Park (at Bathurst and Dundas). From there participants proceeded to the third checkpoint at Trinity Bellwoods Park and then south to Ontario Place and the Israel Funwalk Festival.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains photographs, a small amount of textual records, a promotional video and a purple and white hat from the Israel Funwalk of 2001. The records include a promotional brochure and the organizational material distributed to participants (sponsor sheet, collection envelope and information pamphlet).
Notes
Physical description note: Includes 331 photographs (216 negatives), 1 videocassette (8 mins.), and 1 hat.

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.
