Sony Pictures Raises $51,712.00 for the Childrens Hospital LA and finish 3rd in the Entertainment Industry Challenge

As part of the entertainment industry challenge at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, Sony Pictures raised a staggering $51,712.00 for the Childrens Hospital LA. We set our target this year to be an ambitious $40,000 and to our surprise we sailed past this figure with ease.

Out of the 17 teams, Sony was the 5th biggest fundraiser and as this was only our second year competing as a team, we were more than happy with this result.

Every member on the team did a tremendous job with 13 members raising over $1000 each, 4 of which raising $2000 or more.

Our top 3 fundraisers for 2010 were as follows:
  1. Mickey Corcoran $2960.00
  2. Jessica Midstokke $2502.00
  3. Matt Dames $2415.00
For the second part of the challenge, we again put in a strong performance and finished a strong 3rd place, just 1 minute behind the might of Disney. Congratulation to Warner Bros. for an outstanding performance taking the win by a clear margin.

We will try to take a pot at them next year although most of our focus as a team will be on introducing newcomers to this wonderful sport of triathlon.

Just to finish, Sony had a great result in the M30-34 division with three of our team taking the podium together. Dan Sheerin (2nd), Josh Wills (3rd) and Jamie Specht (5th). A special moment for the three of us.
