Video: Thousands Walk for Good Causes

Manhattan Beach residents, and others across the South Bay, raise more than $521,000 for local schools and special needs children at the annual Skechers Pier-to-Pier Friendship Walk.

About 7,200 people laced up their shoes Sunday for the third annual . Participants walked from the Manhattan Beach Pier to the Hermosa Beach Pier and back to raise funds for local education foundations and the Friendship Circle, an organization for special needs children.

"We're making a difference, and it's really the support of the community coming out for a wonderful cause," said Skechers president Michael Greenberg. 

Bands and cheer squads from Mira Costa and Palos Verdes high schools energized the crowd. Celebrity ambassadors , Denise Austin and Tommy Lasorda were also on hand lending support.
