MALIBU, Calif. (KABC) — It was a chilly Sunday morning at Zuma Beach, but that didn’t stop thousands from taking a dip in the Malibu Triathlon.
About 5,000 triathletes swam, biked and ran to the finish line this weekend while raising money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Pediatric Cancer Research Program.
New York transplant Josie Danzinger decided to run the 2XU Malibu Triathlon with the help of her mother, who entered Saturday’s race.
This time there was a new addition. It was the American debut of the Super League Triathlon – the world’s fastest swim-bike-run series.
Triathlete Max Wiseman was surprised to raise about $17,000.
“I just think it’s important to give back and try to inspire him to be philanthropic,” Wiseman’s father said.
ABC7 anchor Philip Palmer also took part in the event – he and many others are committed to the cause.
