Join the JMS 'Skechers Pier-to-Pier Friendship Walk' Team
Join the Jefferson Jaguars at the 8th Annual Skechers Pier-to-Pier Friendship Walk on Sunday, October 23rd at the Manhattan Beach Pier. Our goal is to build a team of at least 100 walkers (both physical and virtual walkers alike!). All proceeds come back to JMS, and what a great way to get together as a school community for a wonderful cause and time together. Check-in is at 8am on the day of the event or you can check-in early on Friday, October 21st - Saturday, October 22nd from 11am-6pm at Skechers locations throughout the South Bay (*location details to be shared prior to the event). All walkers receive a T-shirt and 'swag bag' of goodies upon check-in. The Opening Ceremonies and Pier-to-Pier Walk begins at 9am. The JMS team will be meeting in front of 'The Strand' restaurant on Manhattan Beach Blvd., adjacent to the pier at 8am.
