Celebrities including Bret Michaels, Jon Cryer, Jeremy Sisto, Mark Feuerstein and even Sheriff Lee Baca turned out Sunday for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, which raised $1 million for Children's Hospital Los Angeles, ABC 7 reports.

The triathlon starts off with a half-mile ocean swim, then an 18-mile bike ride, with the last leg being a four-mile run.

"It's for Children's Hospital Los Angeles, which I am a nurse there, so it's really close to my heart," said participant Lauren Windham. "Anything I can do for children's cancer, it's great."

Most of Sunday's participants say they will be back again next year.
