Admin History/Bio
The 2007 Walk with Israel was held on Sunday, 27 May 2007. It started with a kick-off party in Coronation Park by the waterfront, which featured inflatables and music. Prominent attendees were Stéphane Dion, leader of the Liberal Party of Canada; John Baird, the federal minister of the environment; and more than twenty other elected officials. The walk was co-chaired by Ruth Eckstein and Helen Silverstein. The largest incentive for those raising money was to be a "chai walker": if one raised $1,800, one had the choice of a $500 prize and was invited onstage during the kick-off party. With a threatening weather forecast, only seven thousand people came out. The fundraising cause was a new daycare centre in northern Israel and providing employment training to Ethiopian women in a community near Tel Aviv.
At the end of the ten-kilometre route, people enjoyed the kosher barbecue, games, rides, and arts and crafts at the RioCan Carnival at Ontario Place.
