I have been participating in the SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk for the past 8 years. I have walked with my school every year since kindergarten. It is about a 3 mile walk (Manhattan Pier to Hermosa Pier and back). When I started, it was fairly small, but last year I think about 10,000-15,000 people walked the walk. It has become a huge event in the South Bay, and all of the local schools and school districts participate. The best part is, the money raised goes to our school and the Friendship Foundation.
