The annual Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk rallies thousands every October for a fun-filled celebration at the beach, where families and friends gather to walk from Manhattan Beach Pier to Hermosa Beach Pier and back in support of one common purpose; to support children with special needs and education. The walk is produced by SKECHERS USA and is co-produced by The Friendship Foundation. Through donations The Friendship Foundation can assist children with special needs and their families through one-on-one peer mentoring and social recreational activities. Funds raised also supports 6 Education Foundations in the South Bay District.
