Rock the Riverfront featuring the Charity Classic

June 25, 2022

Run or walk for a reason! The RCU Foundation presents the 2022 Rock the Riverfront featuring the Charity Classic event with options - choose between the in-person event in Eau Claire, WI, or a virtual race where you can run, walk, bounce or skip whenever and wherever you would like!

The Charity Classic is celebrating 28 years of running and walking to support organizations that make a difference in the communities that Royal Credit Union serves. Proceeds from the event will benefit three Veteran-focused partner charities: Chippewa Valley Veterans Tribute Foundation of Eau Claire, Sofas for Service of Eau Claire, and Wisconsin Veterans Home at Chippewa Falls. We are proud to give back to those who have served and the organizations that advocate for making a difference in Veterans’ lives.

Your votes will help decide how much each charity is awarded! Every registration includes a free charity vote and additional votes can be purchased at $2 each. The charity with the most votes will receive $15,000, second place will receive $7,500, and third will receive $5,000.  

Rock the Riverfront featuring the Charity Classic offers beautiful running routes and the opportunity to benefit three organizations that are making a positive impact in local communities.  Check out non-runner activities like the rock hunts, a coloring contest, and the ever popular dunk tank as a way to support the RCU Foundation and the charities it has committed to help.  Find all the details for these activities at www.rcu.org/race.
