Teri Hatcher is competing in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon Sunday, and the Desperate Housewives star is giving it her all to help out a sick little girl named Sophia, RadarOnline.com has learned.

On her Facebook page, Teri posted photos of herself in a striking blue swimsuit. She's wearing a sign that says, "Sophia: This One's For You!"

Sophia, the actress explains, is the daughter of Joel Rothman, who wrote to her about his two-year-old daughter Sophia, a patient at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.  Sophia has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and is blind.

Her story touched Teri's heart and she made the little girl the focus of her fund-raising efforts as a Triathlon contestant.

"After checking the water forecast, I now know that when I dive into the 60 degree shoreline at 7 am for a Sunday adrenaline based swim, they'll be one beautiful girl to reach stroke after stroke for.  And that's Sophia."

Hatcher is competing in the swimming race only; she says she's just not in the same shape she was a year ago when she swam, biked and ran.

Sophia's family doesn't care.  She's still a hero to them!
