2013 Santa Barbara Triathlon

Higher Education Requires Endurance

Being the beneficiary of the 2013 Santa Barbara Triathlon was an amazing and fortunate experience for the Board, staff, and students of the Scholarship Foundation!

Presenting sponsor Montecito Bank & Trust and the organizers of the Triathlon worked tirelessly to make sure that the Scholarship Foundation netted thousands of dollars from the generous participants of this outstanding event, held August 24-25, 2013 at Santa Barbara’s East Beach.  Thousands of athletes swam, cycled, and ran on both the long course and sprint events in a hugely well-organized affair on a picture-perfect weekend in Santa Barbara.

We are enormously grateful to Joe Coito, Sylvia Hendlin, Sherry Stimatz, Carlina Gonzalez, and the whole crew at the wonderful Santa Barbara Triathlon, and very thankful to our marvelous friends and supporters at Montecito Bank & Trust.  You are all remarkable and selfless in your dedication to helping our community.  Net proceeds from the Triathlon will be used to establish a special new scholarship fund! Thank you for making sure that the Scholarship Foundation has the ability to help our students cross the academic finish line.
