The annual SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk on October 28thaims to support children with special needs and education and at the same time it helps and it helps us raise funds for all of our RBUSD schools.
RBEF is one of six Education Foundations that receive funds from this event. Last year, RBEF had over 2,500 registered walkers which resulted in a check from Skechers for $200,000. RBEF will donate 100% of every $30 registration fee back to your school! The more registrations, the more money your school raises. There is NO NEED to make additional donations. If you want to give more, please consider purchasing another registration.
The amount we receive is based on the number of people who register, so please join your school's team regardless of whether you are planning to actually walk on the day! Join a team here: https://rbef.org/skechers-walk/
