Walk or Run for Fun and a Good Cause

Are you attending the National Hardware Show® and North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) All-Industry Conference?

If so, would you be willing to walk or run for a good cause?

The National Hardware Show and NRHA are hosting the Raise the Roof Run in support of the Fuller Center for Housing.

The 5K fun run and 1-mile walk is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. May 9 at Sunset Park in Las Vegas. For more information or to sign up to participate, visit https://hdy5k.weebly.com/ and click the “Register to Run” button. The cost is $35 per 5K participant $25 per 1-mile walker.

The Fuller Center for Housing’s goal is to provide every family with a decent place to live in the U.S. and throughout the world.

The Fuller Center works to renovate existing homes and build new ones in partnership with families in need. Families work alongside volunteers to build or renovate their homes and then repay the building costs through no-interest loans on terms they can afford.
