Local fitness studio RiseUp Fitness will host a fundraising event open to all community members to support Jacob and Family, Saturday, May 27 at 2273 Las Positas Road, Santa Barbara.

Jacob is a sixth-grade student at Monte Vista School, whose single father recently passed away from cancer. Jacob and his 19-year-old brother are left without parents or other family to help care for them.

Donations from the fundraiser will help support Jacob and his brother as they navigate the next phase of their lives. Their current and future needs include rent, food, clothing, housing supplies, and, if possible, a college fund, all of which will be directly impacted by donations.

The event will include options for a donation-based workout class (appropriate for all levels and focused on fun), silent auction, and an outdoor social event with donation-based food and beverages in Santa Barbara.

RiseUp hopes to provide a bright example of the community bonding together to support a worthwhile cause. All donations made will go directly to support Jacob and his family.

The event features a silent auction (already live online at https://app.galabid.com/riseupjacob/items); a donation-based RiseUp Fitness class with a live DJ; and an onsite social event with donation-based food and drink, noon-2 p.m. May 27 at the RiseUp Fitness Las Positas location.
