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.
Register early to receive a discount! Participants will receive a charity vote, t-shirt, and medal. Registration will be open through June 27 at 11:59pm. We're keeping our tradition and making it easy for the whole family to participate by offering adult and youth race options. Participants will be mailed their t-shirt and medal at the end of 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:
- Family Support Center of Chippewa Falls
- National Alliance On Mental Illness Chippewa Valley
- New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers in Whitehall
Participants will be able to complete their race anytime and anywhere between June 27-July 12.
