The SKECHERS Friendship Walk supports children with special needs and public education and is the largest charity event in California that supports these two causes. This year, NBC4 Southern California is the proud media sponsor of SKECHERS' signature charity event.
Many celebrities support the 2016 Walk including boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, TV personality Brooke Burke-Charvet, fitness expert Denise Austin, and Hall of Fame baseball manager Tommy Lasorda.
Funds raised from the Walk support The Friendship Foundation, an organization that assists children with special needs and their families through one-on-one peer mentoring and social recreational programming – as well as funding education foundations to retain vital academic programs, maintain smaller class sizes, improve libraries, and upgrade school technology.
