Barron Lake Triathlon

Please join us in honoring Steve (Steve-O) Smith for the 1st Annual Barron Lake Triathlon, August 30th, 2014! Steve-O is a world champion triathlete who was tragically diagnosed with Glioblastoma Brain Cancer while training to qualify for his 13th Kona Ironman World Championship. He is a long time resident of the Michiana area and a true inspiration to many for his amazing achievements, both on and off the course. “Racing For Steve-O” is a not for profit foundation created to bring to life his vision to help kids with special needs participate in recreational activities. All proceeds raised will go towards offering scholarships to area special needs kids so they can participate in summer camps and sports.
