The family and friends of Philip L. “Phil” Haberstro IV, a 1965 graduate of Cardinal O’Hara High School and the founder and former executive director of the Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo, will sponsor the third annual “Spirit of Phil” 4-mile walk.

Participants will meet at Cardinal O’Hara at 10 a.m. Sept. 16. The walk will be on the Town of Tonawanda Rails-to-Trails pathway, accessible from Cardinal O’Hara.

A press release stated, “Haberstro, who died Nov. 18, 2020, led the effort to make Buffalo an All-America City, and for decades was a familiar organizer and presence at community health fairs, health conferences and walks.”

Registration fee is $30, with proceeds used to fund a scholarship for an incoming freshman at Cardinal O’Hara.

Onsite registration is from 9:30-10 a.m., or registration is available online at the event registration tab at cardinalohara.com.

A scholarship award ceremony will take place immediately after the walk. Incoming Cardinal O’Hara freshmen applied for the scholarship that is funded by proceeds from the walk.
