Tri-City event lives up to the challenge


By Kirsten Zoellner

Mon, Oct 27th, 2014

New Rushford business, Jessie Street Java, participated in the first annual Rushford Peterson Valley Conquer the Bluff & Tri-City Challenge. The event was a fundraiser for The Foundation for R-P Schools. Participants from the two challenge teams were (L-R) Pattie and Rodney Thompson, Amy and Kevin Feller, and Bethany and Scott Glatczak.

Any new event can be a gamble for coordinators with endless planning, cost and participation projections, and unpredictable community response. Enthusiastic coordinators in the Rushford Peterson Valley knew this leading up to the October 3 Conquer the Bluff and October 4 Tri-City Challenge and were undeterred. Their vision paid off well for both the communities and participants.

Drawing more than $5,000 for the Foundation for R-P Schools, geared to providing scholarships for graduating seniors, the events were designed to bring awareness to the community and to raise funds for district students. An obvious bonus was offering up the opportunity to take in the valley’s natural appeal, namely Magelssen Bluff, the Root River Trail, the historic Hoiland Mill and Ferndale Golf Course.

On Friday, Conquer the Bluff participants utilized recently developed hiking trails on the east side of the 400-foot bluff. Various routes were available, depending on difficulty, and more than 50 people clamored up two-miles of designated trail Friday afternoon. Individuals, groups, and for one local businesses, even the entire staff turned out in force.

“All seven of our ‘Java Beans’ did it,” enthuses Jessie Street Java co-owner Amy Feller, gushing about her staff. “It was so fun! We enjoyed that we got to know them better.” The event also offered the new business a chance to promote themselves to the community. “It was an opportunity to get our faces out there and we live an active lifestyle anyway, so it was a perfect fit.”

A pasta supper for participants, catered by Burdey’s Café of Peterson, was held at the restored Hoiland Mill following the bluff experience. “Everyone had a great time,” adds coordinator Lisa Ledebuhr.

The following morning, 37 participants lined the trail at the Rushford Depot for an impressive kickoff with the national anthem, sung by local high school students Brittany Kuss and Alejandra Torres, and live music provided by DJ Dwayne Miner. Volunteers for the triathlon challenge included students from the Seniors Give Back group and the National Honor Society.

The run, bike, and golf triathlon, cleverly organized, offered opportunity for all levels of participants. Developed in two tiers, depending on length and ability, it was also designed with the options of individual, two-person or four-person team, or three-person relay, which opened the event .....
