Strengthening Bonds with APSN: Skechers Pledges $2 With Every Sign-Up

Since the inaugural Skechers Friendship Walk in 2019, Skechers has established a strong partnership with APSN (formerly known as Association for Persons with Special Needs), a social service agency that provides special education, vocational training and employment support services for individuals with mild intellectual disability (IQ 50-70). Throughout the years, Skechers has been actively contributing to the community by offering APSN beneficiaries employment opportunities within its warehouse and retail operations, while actively exploring additional roles to empower these individuals further.

Building on this commitment, Skechers will be donating $2 for every participant registration to APSN. The total amount raised will be utilised to purchase shoes for APSN beneficiaries with special needs. This will empower the participants to make a positive impact on the lives of others while staying active and engaged in the community.
