Jennifer Lopez raised $127,000 yesterday (14.09.08) after completing her first triathlon in Malibu, California.
The multi-talented star - who gave birth to twins Max and Emme, her first children with husband Marc Anthony, in February - smiled broadly as she finished the gruelling running, cycling and swimming competition in a respectable two hours, 23 minutes and 28 seconds.
As she crossed the finishing line of the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, Jennifer, 39, told the cheering crowd: "Thank you guys so much. This is an amazing day.
"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 of Los Angeles and hopefully it'll go to good use."
The actress was then met by Marc, who escorted her to the VIP area where she met up with her 'Wedding Planner' co-star Matthew McConaughey - who also competed in the event.
The Nautica Malibu Triathlon raised a total of $950,000 for the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
