About River Valley Charities

Five Local Charity Partners United for a Cause

Support multiple local St. Croix Valley humanitarian charities, all at once!


Under the coordination of River Valley Charities, four direct-service, local charities in western Wisconsin with a shared mission of providing food, shelter, and assistance to our less fortunate neighbors are partnering up for the Coldest Night of the Year 2024. These organizations include Grace Place in New Richmond, Hudson Area Backpack and Food Programs and Operation HELP in Hudson, and Our Neighbors' Place in River Falls. All proceeds from the event will be distributed equally among the four direct-service charities.

Event Day Details

Save the date - CNOY Day is February 24, 2024!

StartGoogle Map

200 1st St, Hudson, WI 54016


Midcurrent Church in Hudson has graciously opened their facility to host CNOY 2024. We will utilize their space for pre-event registration and check-in as well as a soup dinner after the walk.

Local Details

Parking

There is ample parking near Midcurrent Church and Lakefront Park, including roadside parking on First St, the boat ramp lot and the parking lot right off Second St (in front of Lucky Guys and Riverfront Athletic Club). Your GPS might route you to a non-existent entrance for Midcurrent Church off Second St. The only entrance is off First St, next to the river and boat ramp lot.


Rest Stops

We will have rest stops at the turnaround point for both the 1 mile and 3 mile route. Take a minute to grab a bite, refuel and take a break! There is a portable restroom at the 1 mile rest stop and another along the route of the 3 mile route.


Post-Event Meal

We will be serving a light soup meal after the walk at Midcurrent Church.
