SAN DIEGO - The second day of the San Diego Triathlon Challenge on Sunday will feature a grant presentation by the children of late actor Robin Williams. 

Williams was a great supporter of the Challenged Athletes Foundation, the organization putting on this triathlon, and even competed in it himself.

Williams' children will present grants to three challenged athletes and auction off bicycles the actor owned. Money raised will benefit the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the Challenged Athletes Foundation


More than 700 people are participating in this year's event, including 200 who are physically challenged, said 10News reporter Matt Mendes. The athletes performed in the swim portion yesterday and will focus on the cycling and running portions today.
