More Than $1.3 Million Raised at 33rd Nautica Malibu Triathlon

The 33rd annual Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Bank of American to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles took place over the weekend and showcased the talents of age-group athletes, including several celebrities.

The weekend kicked off with the event’s first-ever half-iron distance race, with the classic distance taking place the next day. Pro cyclist-turned-triathlete Andrew Talansky highlighted Saturday’s action, while several celebrities—including Scott Eastwood, Luke Hemsworth, Mark Feuerstein, Geoff Stults, Steve Howie, Bryan Greenberg, and Jamie Chung—took the spotlight on Sunday.
 
Since it was established, the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, which is executive produced by Michael Epstein, has raised over $15 million to benefit basic and translational cancer research programs at the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. 
 
At the 2019 awards presentation, the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented a check to CHLA of an incredible $1,352,603 million dollars in funds raised. Bob Iger + team Disney presented CHLA with a check for $282,000 raised by their team.
