Clock Up Steps while Reconnecting with Loved Ones As Skechers Friendship Walk Returns This August!
Updated: Jul 2
Organised by sports and lifestyle brand SKECHERS for the fourth year running, the Skechers Friendship Walk 2021 Online Edition is back this August 2021 for more friendly fun as participants get to earn exciting Skechers rewards and join in a lucky draw to win the grand prize of the event.
This year’s Walk will be held between 2 to 22 August 2021, during which participants can accumulate steps on their fitness tracker or device to reach different step goals across the two- week period. A good way to stay active even as we are staying home more often these days, and to be able to explore our city’s corners.
“A yearly event that brings the Skechers family and the community together, we are excited that the Skechers Friendship Walk is continuing into this year. The virtual format we have adopted since last year has allowed more flexibility, as participants can join with their friends and family even though they may be physically apart. We look forward to creating a memorable experience for participants to keep active and spend precious time with their loved ones,” said Ms Zann Lee, Vice President of Skechers Southeast Asia.
First held in Singapore in 2018, the Skechers Friendship Walk was transformed into an online Walk format last year, where more than 12,000 participants joined in to track their walk distance in a two-week event. Many also posted moments of their walk with friends and family, exploring their neighbourhood or even scenic and nature trails around Singapore. - more -
