Aaron Jake Perl, 10, secured first place among 188 contestants at the Jarden Westchester Kid Triathlon (ages 7-10) last weekend in Rye.
While the Columbus Elementary School student competed in the 75-yard swim, 2-mile bike, and 1-mile run, his father, Mitch, 53, participated in the adult triathlon the following day.
Aaron, who was born with a congenital short femur and underwent a painful leg-lengthening surgery at age 6 teamed up with his father to benefit the Pleasantville Volunteer Amulance Corps.
The duo raised $1,600 for the organization.
