A beautiful day to celebrate Grace
The Tri4Grace Memorial Triathlon, held Saturday, May 13 in River Falls, saw more than 100 racers/teams, said event organizer Suzanne Goblirsch.
The triathlon is in memory of Grace Goblirsch, a 2011 River Falls High School graduate who died Aug. 23, 2013 after rigorous treatments for acute myeloid leukemia.
Tri4Grace is a sprint triathlon/ duathlon that starts with a 500-yard indoor pool swim, followed by a 10-mile bike ride, and finishes with a 2-mile run.
"Everyone really enjoyed the beautiful morning," Goblirsch said. "We were so happy to celebrate Grace's life and raise money for students directly affected by cancer. We will be handing out three $1,000 scholarships this Wednesday night to high school graduating seniors. We are blessed to live in such a supportive community."
