The Skechers Pier to Pier Walk is an event sponsored by the Friendship Foundation and Skechers USA. Every year, this event is hosted to raise money to help support education and people with special needs. 2018 will mark the 10th year of the Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk. Celebrities attend and perform at the walk each year! Some celebrities include Asia Monet Ray, a singer and dancer who starred on reality TV shows Raising Asia, and Dance Moms, the cast of This is Us, Jason Drucker, From Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Nickelodeon stars, Aidan Miner, Jason Duch, Kyson Facer,  and Jada Facer. This year, the walk is taking place on October 28, 2018, and over $1,500,000 have been donated to help the cause. For every registered person, Skechers donates three times the amount donated to Hermosa schools.
