SANTA BARBARA -- A Santa Barbara boy about to start the third grade is raising thousands of dollars to help out the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. 8-year-old Jacob Mansbach is one of the youngest participants in this year's Santa Barbara Triathlon and is using the swim, bike and run challenge to help raise money for the Foodbank. This is his fourth triathlon but his first as a fundraiser. He plans to do it again next year. So far he's raised $3,860 but has a goal of $4,000. "I want to inspire other kids to do triathlons and help out Foodbank," he said. If you'd like to donate to help Jacob reach his goal, click here: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. The triathlon takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at East Beach.
