Pier to Pier Goes Virtual

Emily Typrowitz, Sports Editor

For the first time, the 12th Annual Skechers Friendship walk will be virtual. The virtual walk will take place Sunday, Oct. 25. 

There will be a live stream presentation at 10 a.m. that includes a special performance by America’s Got Talent star, Kodi Lee. 

In past years, the walk has started and finished at the Manhattan Beach Pier with a turnaround point at the Hermosa Pier. The community would all come together to enjoy this event and support the same cause. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and restrictions with mass gatherings, it will not be possible to walk in person this year. 

The walk is put on by Skechers and The Friendship Foundation with the goal of supporting schools in the South Bay and The Friendship Foundation. Their goal is to ensure inclusion for those with special needs. 

Although the walk will be virtual, the support from the community is greatly appreciated. People can still walk this year in their neighborhoods and register for the virtual event.
