Skechers has announced that it is giving away more than 200,000 pairs of Bobs shoes to children affected by the typhoon that struck the Philippines a few days ago, working through Soles4Souls to make the distribution. Separately, the Skechers Foundation has reported that its fifth annual Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk raised a record $1 million for students and other children with special needs. The Walk, which is described as the largest event of its kind for this kind of causes in Southern California, had more than 10,000 participants.
