Conway Kids Triathlon gives $12,000 to charity

Even though this year’s Conway Kids Triathlon did not take place, organizers worked to continue to provide financial support to the Soul Food Café Mission. 

This would have been the 23rd year for the event, which is typically held in August and presented by First Security Bank. 

First Security Bank and Conway Kids Triathlon representatives recently presented a $12,000 check to the Soul Food Café Mission: Johnny Adams (front, from left) and Stefanie Vann (First Security), Rick and Traci Harvey (Soul Food Café), Margaret Smith (First Security), Daniel Littell (The Rogers Group); and Pete Tanguay (Rock Pond Pros and Conway Kids Triathlon race director and board chair).

Organizers recently presented a $12,000 check to Soul Food Café’s Rick and Traci Harvey. 

The Soul Food Cafe Mission is a faith-based ministry run on biblical principles of reaching out to the hurting with love, compassion and hope. Soul Food provides food boxes, health and beauty items, clothing, haircuts and hot meals from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday at 1717 S. Donaghey Ave. in Conway. (For more information, visit or email
