In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age
of 38. Now, into their 3rd decade of this
financially independent lifestyle, they invite you
to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.
In 1970, while Billy was a senior at Oak Hills High School,
he coordinated this walk, along with the Junior Chamber of Commerce. They had
thousands of participants and raised over $60,000 for charities.
WALK FOR DEVELOPMENT
Cincinnati Enquirer 1970
On Our Cover
Three of the many local high school and college
students who will make Sunday's 21-mile Walk for Development a success are
shown on our cover today. Bill Kaderli, Sharon Patterson and Jim
Conners of Oak Hills High all solicited one or more sponsors who will make
a tax deductible donation for each mile they walk. Jim in fact,
convinced six sponsors to back him! The trio will begin and end at
UC, where they will be greeted by cheering friends and music by the
Heywoods. Proceeds from the walk will be divided among the Neediest
Kids of All, Project for Youth, the Mile of Dimes, and the Totome project
in Botswana, Africa, so the hungry may be fed.

Students interested in walking Sunday, who haven't
already signed up, can simply show up at UC around 8 AM, with the name of
a sponsor and a permission note from their parents. Those who can't
make it that early can begin at one of the check points along the route,
according to the Junior Chamber of Commerce.
The two young people who have the most sponsors for the
walk are Bob Salzarulo of Oak Hills, who chalked up 30, and Phyllis
Roberts and employee of the Child Health Association, who has 24!
It's a magnificent way for young people to show they
care about poverty, and want to help!
