Formula 1 leader Jenson Button to tackle London Triathlon

Posted May 15 2009 10:02pm

Jenson-Button_460 Jensen Button is having one of the best racing years of his life in Formula 1 after his fourth victory in five races on Sunday in Spain.

But come August 1st the formula 1 superstar racer will trade his race car for a race bike.

Button has signed up to race this year' s London Triathlon to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"I have had the pleasure of meeting lots of kids who are supported by the charity at our tests and races," he said.

"It' s a real privilege to be involved with them. The kids are so inspirational and hopefully we can raise enough money to fulfill as many of their dreams as possible."

The London Triathlon is an Olympic Distance race, and so far Button has raised  £ 4,195.22for the charity.

You can donate to his Charity HERE.

Button writes:

"The London Triathlon takes place on Saturday 1 August with almost 11,000 competitors! The race covers a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run.

I' m aiming to finish in the top 10% so no pressure! Somehow I have even persuaded my two race engineers Shov and Bono to take part! They will be competing in the half distance event"
