Please see below letter received from Michael Greenberg, President of Skechers USA Inc. I hope that, like me, you will consider joining Skechers and participate in this wonderful cause. Cheryl Taylor, Senior Editor, Footwear Today Magazine.
Together we can make a huge difference in the lives of many children! I am personally inviting you to join me in supporting SKECHERS 8th Annual Pier to Pier Friendship Walk on October 23, 2016. Over the past 8 years we are proud to say that thousands of people have walked 3.4 miles alongside the beach to show their support for our foundation. We have raised over $5.5 million for The Friendship Circle, a non-profit organization that assists children with special needs and their families, as well as public education. Due to our donations, we have saved teachers’ jobs, preserved critical academic programs, and enhanced libraries and school technology.
Your support will significantly impact the lives of thousands of children with special needs. Last year we raised over $1.5 million for The Friendship Foundation, we anticipate another record breaking year with the help of our celebrity ambassadors – Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen K, Brooke Burke-Charvet and Tommy Lasorda who will be joining over 13,000+ participants at the Friendship Walk in October.
You can join the International Team or donate if you cannot walk by clicking on the link below. Our goal is to reach $150,000! Last year we set a goal of raising $75,000 and quickly surpassed this – we raised over $100,000! Please join us to help exceed our goal for 2016.
