Time is running out for people who plan to support the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation by participating in the annual Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk on Sunday.
The walk, which benefits the Friendship Circle and local education foundations, runs from the Manhattan Beach Pier to the Hermosa Beach Pier and back—a 3.4-mile journey.
People have until 11:59 p.m. Saturday to register online at skechersfriendshipwalk.com. Once registered, they can designate a specific charity—such as MBEF—as well as join a school team.
The entire $25 registration fee is donated to a person's designated charity, and schools receive additional funds in proportion to the number of people who choose to join their teams.
Last year, the walk raised $71,000 for the Manhattan Beach Unified School District.
The walk begins at 9 a.m. People in Manhattan Beach who pre-registered can check in Saturday at the Skechers store at the corner of Manhattan Beach Boulevard and Manhattan Avenue. Walkers can also check-in at the Skechers stores in Redondo Beach (South Bay Galleria), Torrance (Del Amo Mall) and Palos Verdes (Equinox Gym).
Same-day registration will be available starting at 8:30 a.m. Sunday in the Manhattan Beach Pier's lower parking lot off Manhattan Beach Boulevard.
