About This Activity

CertaPro Painters® is proud to partner with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) for our fifth annual 5k walk/run and Community Event in the Greater Philadelphia area. There is also an option for a 1 mile walk. The race is timed and includes cash prizes. 

All proceeds from this 5k race and Community Event will be donated to help Homes for Our Troops build a specially adapted home for Army Corporal Kevin McCloskey. Kevin will give a short speech before we start the run.

Bring your kids for the fun run! Prizes given to all children who run the 100 yard dash. Register kids for the 100 yard dash if you'd like a shirt or want to donate. 

On June 8, 2008, Army Corporal Kevin McCloskey was driving in a convoy with the 506th Infantry Regiment (4th Brigade), 101st Airborne Division, in Logar Province, Afghanistan when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device (IED). The explosion resulted in the loss of both his legs, vision loss in his right eye, burns all over his body and a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
