The 1981 Walk for Israel took place on Sunday, 3 May. Its theme was "Walk for the Youth of Israel," because monies raised went to build a sports complex for the children of Mazkeret Batya. Advertised highlights of the 1981 walk included Al Waxman, a celebrity photo booth, the Blue Jays bird, Mr. Peanut, and the Toronto Argos cheerleaders. The walk ended with a celebration of the northern JCC's (BJCC's) twentieth anniversary. As an adjunct fundraiser, a fiftteen-hour danceathon was held at the BJCC, where participants could dance from 11 p.m. to 2 p.m. the next day. The danceathon was organized by Ruth Lootsteen and Jack Samuel.
