The most fun you can have walking with over 7,000 people on a Sunday afternoon.
The Third annual Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk was last Sunday October 30th. The Skechers Foundation and Friendship Circle raise money for education and children and adults with special needs. This year over 7,200 participants helped raise over $520,00 for these causes. Donations are still coming in, so the final amount remains to be seen.
I had a blast just skipping about, cheering people on and snapping their photos. I got to see Lions, Wizards, Unicorns, Spinners, Tutus, Cheerleaders, Poops (preferred organization of positive students), Ladies with fish hats, Swat teams, Birthday boys, Rainbow shoes, Dirt bag dudes, Athletes, Parents, Poodles, Princesses, Pumpkins, Babies in wagons, People passing out candy, I met many, many teenagers being awesome.
I had a wonderful time and the entire event restored my faith in humanity- if only for a weekend. When the 7 thousand people left- there was hardly any garbage on the strand to speak of. Not bad folks! Let’s do it again next year!
