In 1979 the Walk with Israel had a second name: the Canada-Israel Friendship Walk. This name highlighted the year's focus on walking for Israel's children, although the official name was still used. The Walk featured sports and show business personalities signing autographs, and drew 12,000 participants. Continuing with the Bathurst corridor route, the Walk started at the BJCC, went south to St. Clair and back to Earl Bales Park.
The Walk this year also featured an Early Bird prize. First introduced in 1978, the Early Bird draw was an incentive for walkers to collect and return their pledges soon after the walk. Those who did so within two weeks of the Walk had their names entered in a draw to win one of a number of prizes donated by local businesses.
