La Jolla hosts Challenged Athletes Foundation event

This weekend, the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s (CAF) 25th San Diego Triathlon Challenge will stage several events in La Jolla.

These include the 2018 Million Dollar Challenge on Friday, Oct. 19, in which a record 166 cyclists — including 18 challenged athletes — will enter Kellogg Park in La Jolla Shores after some were riding 700-plus miles down the coast from Sausalito. They include NBA Hall-of-Famer Bill Walton, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and former San Diego police chief Shelley Zimmerman. (Faulconer and Zimmerman head up Team Made in San Diego, whose goal is to raise $125 per mile.)
