The 1974 Walk for Israel was "a family affair" that attracted 5,000 participants, including a busload of students from Kingston. It took place on Sunday, May 12. The route started at Lawrence and Bathurst, went downtown and then north again to the BJCC. Walk pledges were collected on a per-mile basis, with money being collected after the walk took place.
File consists of five images of a group of people with a costumed fox, presumably a mascot that year, and a Walk sign. The images were taken at 11 Goldfinch Court in the Finch and Bathurst area, which appears to be simply an apartment building complex.

The 1976 Walkathon was held on May 30. Funds raised went towards UJA's Israel Special Fund. This year's walk was the first in which community groups took charge of each of the checkpoints, beginning a long tradition of B'nai Brith's involvement in the Walk.

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.
