Pier to Pier Walk – Service Opportunity

  • The annual SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk is an event that brings together all walks of life for one common purpose; to support children with special needs and education.  It’s a really fun day to get out and walk to support a great cause.   Not only is the walk a great way to spend time with friends and family but it also raises money for your local school district. 100% of the registration fee goes back to special education departments in the South Bay. The walk is on October 29th at 9:00am. Check in starts at 8:30am at the Manhattan Beach Pier. A sign-up sheet will be in the DVD front office.
