JOIN JACOB 2017
Santa Barbara Triathlon Team to Benefit the Foodbank
In 2012, then 8-year old Jacob Mansbach volunteered at the Foodbank and saw an opportunity to make a difference. Combining his love for triathlons with his desire to help kids in his community, Jacob took on his first Santa Barbara Triathlon and began fundraising for the Foodbank. Through his efforts, Jacob has inspired all ages to donate, volunteer and get fit.
Jacob was joined by his brother Joseph in 2013, and each summer, the boys invite a team of elementary and junior high school kids to participate. Since 2012, the JOIN JACOB team has raised an amazing $70,000 for the Foodbank. Learn more here.
