The Story

EVENT DATE: May 10, 2017

 

The 1st Annual Raise the Roof Run, presented by STIHL, will take place at beautiful Sunset Park in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 10, 2017
 

The 5K run / 1 Mile walk event is hosted by the National Hardware Show and the North American Retail Hardware Association, with proceeds benefitting The Fuller Center for Housing. 
 

Today, 1.6 billion people – about 23% of the global population – live in sub-standard housing. In the U.S. alone, over 95 million people go without affordable housing, whether due to homelessness, sub-standard dwellings, or unaffordable rent. By participating in the Raise the Roof Run, attendees of the National Hardware Show will support the Fuller Center for Housing's relentless mission to provide a simple, decent, affordable place to live – and hope for the future – for families-in-need around the world.
 

The starting gun will be at 7:30am Wednesday morning. A complimentary shuttle, as well as Lyft coupons, will be provided to help participants get to/from the Park. All runners/walkers who register by April 15th will receive a free race t-shirt, a custom event nail apron, and finisher medal. Pre-registration starts at $25 for walkers and $35 for runners.

About the Fuller Center for Housing: Launched in 2005 by Habitat for Humanity co-founders Millard & Linda Fuller, The Fuller Center for Housing is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide. The Fuller Center currently works in over 70 U.S. cities and 16 countries, and has housed over 3,800 families since its founding.

Working under the “Partnership Housing” model, The Fuller Center is empowering families by offering a “hand-up” out of the cycle of poverty. Partner families build alongside our volunteers and then repay the costs on terms they can afford -- with no interest charged, and no profit made. As their payments go toward work on other houses, Fuller Center families become donors in their own right, demonstrating the principle that it is more blessed to give than to receive.

The Fuller Center for Housing is based in Americus, GA.
