Barron Lake Triathlon benefits Racing for Steve-O. Steve-O's vision and our mission for this foundation is to help Michiana children have opportunities to be involved in sports and athletics regardless of physical, mental and financial barriers. Steve taught high school health and PE for 40 years while also coaching high school swimming. This is where he became passionate and inspired by his many amazing students and athletes with special needs. When asked what he'd like to do with funds raised by the foundation, he didn't hesitate to say he wanted to help the kids who were such an inspiration to him!
