Jennifer Lopez has competed in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon and raised $127,000 for charity.

The singer and actress – who completed the event in 2 hours, 23 minutes, and 28 seconds – raised the money for the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, a facility that provides seriously ill children with medical care from some of the country’s best doctors regardless of their families’ ability to pay.

“I feel really great and so glad I finished and that I made it out of the water – but more amazing than that, I feel really great that we raised $127,000 for the Children’s Hospital and hopefully it’ll go to good use,” said Lopez.

The event – which took place on Sunday – featured a half-mile ocean swim, an 18-mile bike ride, and a 4-mile run, with competitors making their way “through some of the most beautiful scenic roads in Malibu, with spectacular views of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean”.

Lopez’s husband, Marc Anthony, supported the 39-year-old during the event, and Lopez was joined by Matthew McConaughey, who completed the event in 1 hour. Over $950,000 was raised for charity during the event.
