Be a part of this annual event to raise funds and awareness for Rebuilding Together Philadelphia (RTP). With a poverty rate of 26% and more than 12% of Philadelphians living in deep poverty, RTP services are needed now more than ever. RTP provides free home repairs and renovations to low-income homeowners, increasing their ability to stay in their home, for seniors to age in place and for disabled residents to have more mobility. Last year, RTP engaged 1,188 volunteers to complete over $1.7 million worth of repairs for 79 homeowners.

Our finish line is a SAFE and HEALTHY HOME for every person. Help us RE-BUILD neighborhoods and RE-START communities by participating in the Run to Rebuild 5K /2 mile walk!

This is an official timed race, and the fastest runners in each age group will win an award. The walk is non-competitive. The trail is easy on the feet and easy to enjoy – ideal for seasoned runners and newbies, families and employee groups. Plan to enjoy family-friendly activities.

Note we will have day-of registration for $40!
