2019 Raise the Roof Run — a 5K/1M event benefiting The Fuller Center for Housing
7 a.m. PDT, Wednesday May 8, 2019 at Sunset Park, Las Vegas
Hosts: National Hardware Show & North American Retail Hardware Association
This third annual fundraiser coincides with the annual National Hardware Show in Las Vegas and benefits The Fuller Center for Housing — a grass-roots, highly efficient affordable housing nonprofit that works in more than 70 American communities and 22 countries to help families have simple, decent places to live. Charity Navigator has rated The Fuller Center its highest level of four stars, while GuideStar has awarded The Fuller Center its rare, highest-level Platinum rating for transparency. Proceeds from this event will provide a hand-up not a handout — to families who perform sweat equity by working alongside volunteers to build and repair their homes. Families repay the costs of materials on terms they can afford, with zero-percent interest charged and no profit made. Those payments go into a Fund for Humanity to help others in their community get the same hand-up into better living conditions.
