AEG Raises More Than $40,000 for Pediatric Cancer Research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Through Company-Sponsored 2019 Nautica Malibu Triathlon Team
In a combined effort to advance its employees’ health and well-being and continue its longstanding support of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), AEG – the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company – raised more than $40,000 for CHLA through its involvement with the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sunday, Sept. 15 in Malibu, Calif.
More than 50 AEG employees on the AEG Tri Team competed in a half-mile ocean swim, 17-mile bike ride and four-mile run to benefit CHLA in conjunction with the race’s Entertainment Industry Challenge, which encourages teams from companies in the entertainment industry to fundraise the most for CHLA.
“Since we first formed the AEG Tri Team for this event in 2015, we have raised more than $100,000 for pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,” said Ted Fikre, Vice Chairman and Chief Legal and Development Officer, AEG. “This is in large testament to the hard work and enthusiasm of our employees and we look forward to participating in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon next year.”
The AEG Tri Team is sponsored by AEG and Golden Road Brewing, a staple brewery in the Los Angeles community and affiliate of Golden Road Aquatics, a private swim team comprised of 150 swimmers, triathletes and professional swimmers.
Funds raised through the Nautica Malibu Triathlon will go toward pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
