Each Month, Presidio Sports recognizes a local sports figure for their extraordinary contribution to the Santa Barbara athletic community.
It is our way to recognize those who have made a positive impact, whether it is an outstanding athletic performance, a lifetime achievement award, or perhaps a philanthropic athletic booster.
This award is made possible by American Riviera Bank.
Feel free to email worthy candidates for Sports Figure of the Month to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CURRENT SPORTS FIGURE OF MONTH: Jack Bianchi
After taking some time off, Jack Bianchi is piling up the mileage on his bike and running again.
There’s a big race coming up and Bianchi is getting ready for it.
Bianchi, 70, is an outstanding senior endurance sports athlete and a survivor of advanced stage cancer.
He’s also quite the humanitarian. Just as he does in workouts and in competitions, Bianchi pours his energy and passion into supporting worthy causes. He’s started and organized events that have raised more than $1 million to support the Santa Barbara Cancer Center’s Wellness Program and cancer research.
