Two years ago, third grader Jacob Mansbach volunteered at the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County and saw an opportunity to make a difference. Combining his love for triathlons with his desire to help kids in his community he raised over $4,600 for the Foodbank that summer.  Last year, his friend Dario joined him and together they participated in a triathlon and raised over $13,000.

This summer, Jacob, now 10 years old, has invited an entire team of kids to join him.  This energetic group of kids will participate in the Santa Barbara Triathlon on August 24, 2014 with the shared goals of finishing the triathlon and raising over $50,000 for the Foodbank. The team’s intention is to provide nutrition and education to kids and families in our community through the Foodbank.  The team (comprised of third to seventh graders in the Santa Barbara School District) has dedicated their summer break to volunteering for the Foodbank, raising money and awareness, and learning all about the sport of triathlon.

Your donation will not only support the work of the Foodbank, it will send a clear message to this team of kids that they can make an impact on the lives of others and that helping their community can be extraordinary.
