Rock the Riverfront
Rock the Riverfront Featuring The Charity Classic has gone virtual for 2020! Run anytime from June 28 - July 12
Rock the Riverfront featuring the Charity Classic has gone virtual!
Run or walk for a Reason! The RCU Foundation is transitioning the 2020 Rock the Riverfront featuring the Charity Classic event to a virtual race. This will be a first for us, in the 26-year history of our event, but we made the decision with your safety in mind as a result of the current environment created by COVID 19.
Registration closed June 28 at 11:59pm. Shirts and medals will be mailed late July.
Each year, three charities receive Rock the Riverfront proceeds. Funds are distributed according to the number of votes each charity receives, with the first place winner receiving $15,000, the second place winner receiving $7,500, and the third place winner receiving $5,000. Each registration includes one charity vote. The RCU Foundation remains committed to the $27,500 donation and your support is needed. Mental health and domestic violence have emerged as two prevalent issues during the global pandemic and the event is providing support to these organizations at a critical time.
This year’s charities are:
