Skechers President Michael Greenberg Tuesday presented $586,000 in donation funds raised by participants and corporate sponsors in the fourth annual Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk last October.
Lauren Dutko, Skechers spokesperson, said the amount that was raised and donated was nearly $100,00 more than from the previous year's walk.
The Friendship Circle received $250,000 and the remainder was divided among six South Bay educational foundations, including the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation.
Other foundations that received funds include Hermosa Beach Education, Redondo Beach Educational, Torrance Education, El Segundo Education and Peninsula Education.
