Grateful to the Municipality of Loiza for allowing us to make our first  in- person 5K race race and thus show their commitment to families in need.

Thank you for letting us be part of you!

Raise the roof 5K is more than a race, it's a tool for the reconstruction of Puerto Rico.


At Techos Pa' Mi Gente we serve families that have not been properly assisted to rebuild their roofs affected by natural disasters. We work with 100% volunteer labor and donations collected for the purchase of materials.


Help us to continue helping!

5K Mission

In Puerto Rico there are more than 20,000 families in need of a safe roof. The pertinent agencies establish that there are about 4,500, however, our experience confirms that there are many more than reported. There are thousands of families that have not been properly served, because in many cases, the documentation has become more important than the need.


Our organization has a waiting list of about 900 cases. Each registration is an important boost towards the goal of serving you

It is recommended to use an appon your cell phone (optional) that tracks your distance and time. You can use the app of your choice. Some examples of applications that you can use are: Runkeeper, Runtastic, Strava, Endomondo, Trac, among others.
