Team Sony breaks the $40,000 mark for the Childrens Hospital LA

As team Sony approaches the race at Malibu, it's team members have already broken the $40,000 it set as a fund raising target with nearly 3 weeks left to go.
At this time last year we were still below $30,000 so this is a huge step up for the team that now contains over 100 participants.

We are also set to fully qualify for the Entertainment Industry Challenge that puts Sony up against the likes of Disney, Paramount, Warner Bros. Dreamworks and other. For the challenge, 9 top times are combined and compared against that of the other teams. The top 3 male and female individuals as well as our top male, female and mixed relays will make up this combined time.

Although we are shooting for a good team score, the important thing on the day is to go out there and have fun. We have lots of members doing their first triathlon so it is really exciting to watch them enjoy the occasion.

Good luck to the team and see you out there.

Sony Pictures is gearing up to compete in the 2010 Malibu Triathlon

On September 12th, Sony Pictures will be competing in the Malibu Triathlon for the second year in a row. As one of the largest and atmospheric races in the area, we feel it is a great one to introduce new athletes to the sport of triathlon. This year we estimate that nearly half our team are first timers to triathlon. I'm sure they'll love it.

Sony has over 100 athletes taking part in this years race which is a massive increase over the previous year and as of the time of printing, we have raised over $31,000 for the Childrens Hospital LA, exceeding last years total with over 3 weeks to go before the fundraising deadline.

Good luck to all of our athletes and have fun in the race.
