Local Kids Competiting in Triathlon and Fundraising for Foodbank

Local kids are making a difference, training for the Santa Barbara Triathlon and raising money for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County.

17 kids have joined “Team Jacob”. They have spent weeks swimming, biking and running in preparation for the triathlon. The kids have also raised about 18,000 dollars to donate to the Foodbank. Their goal is to raise 50,000.

“Team Jacob” was started by Jacob Mansbach. He’s spent a lot of his time volunteering at the Foodbank warehouse, delivering food to the community and raising awareness about hunger issues in Santa Barbara County. Helping to feed local children is a cause close to his heart.

One in five kids in Santa Barbara County is at risk of hunger. “Team Jacob” is racing and fundraising in honor of those kids.
