A day of activities will take place on Saturday, June 26, to celebrate the life and work of
Philip L. Haberstro IV (Jan. 17, 1948 – Nov. 18, 2020).
It will include a “Spirit of Phil” walk on the Rails-to-Trails pathway, as well as a memorial held for Phil at Cardinal O’Hara High School in Tonawanda, N.Y., school alma mater.

- Try to keep the Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo (Healthy Community Programs – Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo (creatinghealthycommunities.org) ) alive as the legacy of his life’s work.
