Children are big winners after race.

Children are big winners after race

The Bud Light Sea Colony Triathalon raised approximately $52,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization that grants the "wishes" of children who suffer from life-threatening health problems.

Despite the blustery threat of Hurricane Hugo, nearly 500 athletes braved the choppy ocean waters for a 0.9-mile swim, followed by a 22.5-mile bicycle ride, and a 6.2-mile run. Winner Edward Bogess managed the race smoothly in one hour and 48 minutes.

"The triathalon is a major fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation," said Fran Becker, event coordinator, Make-A-Wish Foundation. "We receive nothing but positive feedback from particpants, volunteers, organizers and sponsors."
