Celebrate friendship this December at the inaugural Skechers Friendship Walk. Gather your friends and family for an evening of fun, exercise and catch-up. Motivate each other to overcome the inflatable obstacles along the 5km route held at Gardens by the Bay East on 1st December.
Skechers Friendship Walk, which started in Manhattan Beach in California in 2009, is an inspiring event that brings together people from all walks of life for a common purpose – to support children with special needs and education. The USA edition of the Walk is produced by Skechers USA and co-produced by The Friendship Foundation. The event attracted over 13,000 participants annually and supported six education foundations over the past nine years.
After nine successful editions in Manhattan, United States and subsequently, China, Malaysia, Skechers’ biggest walk is coming to Singapore.
The Singapore installment will feature a 5km non-competitive walk that will flag off from Gardens by the Bay East, and end at Tanjong Rhu Promenade. For photo enthusiasts, they will also be able to take photos against Singapore famous skyline with landmarks such as the Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Flyer and Sports Hub.
Before the walk begins, each participant will receive a limited edition race tee from Skechers! The race tees come with four different designs which will remind you that Friendship creates
- WONDERFUL memories
- LOVING memories
- BAGUS memories LAH
- LASTING memories
Participants are encouraged to sign up in groups in order to collect different designs and create unforgettable memories and race to the finish line together as a team – all with the power of friendship motivating you from behind.
Participants and their families can also look forward to a carnival where they can enjoy great food and drinks, engaging activities and chill at a movie “theatre” under the night sky to end off their day.
Along the route, there will be a series of fun challenges for everyone to motivate and push each other and complete as a team. This is to reinforce the message of bonding amongst families and friends!
Participants can stand a chance to win a meet-and-greet session with SKECHERS brand ambassador Wu Zun 吴尊 for a new lifestyle concept store opening on 8th December, when they register for the Friendship Walk. They will get their chances doubled should they complete the quest card on during the Walk.
Other fringe activities at the event will include a pre-event workout, hoverball archery, inflatable air hockey, quest games and many more.
Registration for the SKECHERS Friendship Walk in Singapore opens today with early bird specials of SGD35 for an individual adult, $SGD20 for an individual child, SGD60 for a buddy promotion and SGD80 for the family bundle of two adults and a kid.
