Walk This Way

Footwear News - - INSIDER - Char­lie Car­ballo —

The Skech­ers Pier to Pier Friend­ship Walk set a mile­stone on its 10th an­niver­sary Oct. 28 by sur­pass­ing $2 mil­lion in con­tri­bu­tions for chil­dren with spe­cial needs. Long­time sup­porter Brooke Burke was on hand at the Man­hat­tan Beach, Calif., event, and she told FN that she brings her chil­dren to teach them the power of giv­ing. She said, “Michael Green­berg had an idea 10 years ago, and to­day, there’s 14,000 peo­ple, and it keeps grow­ing. It’s an ac­com­plish­ment, and it feels good. That’s what I’m try­ing to teach my chil­dren — give un­til it feels good.” Since its in­cep­tion, the event has raised more than $11 mil­lion.
