Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher is set to compete in the 2009 Nautica Malibu Triathlon for charity, and she’s blogging about her training.
The actress is looking for donations for “Team Hatcher” to support Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Her fundraising goal for the event – which takes place this Saturday – is $10,000, and she is hoping for your support.
“I recently accepted the challenge of participating in the fundraising efforts surrounding the Nautica Malibu Triathlon,” she wrote. "I have single handedly taken my carbon footprint significantly down by riding my bike to work at least 3 times a week. I’m running on my treadmill – so I’ve had to find room in my closet for the clothes that normally hang on it – and I’m swimming 50 to 80 laps in my pool. Thus the pool no longer serves as a leaf and bee catcher. The event takes place on September 13, 2009, and I have committed to raise at least $10,000 for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles in partnership with the event. I’ve done one “dress rehearsal” in which I did not drown or get eaten by a great white shark. And after watching an entire shark week of episodes on TV, that was what I call facing a giant fear.
“Donate anything you can, EVEN a DOLLAR. I’m really grateful to those of you who’ve come this far to check out this event. It’s raising lots of money for such an important cause – children. What could be more important than that?!”
