CertaPro Painters is proud to partner with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) for our sixth annual 5k walk/run and Community Event in the Greater Philadelphia area. 100% of proceeds from this race will be donated to help Homes for Our Troops build a specially adapted home for Army CPL Kevin McCloskey.

We have an EXCITING race day planned.

High Quality Performance T-Shirts
Registration Bags
Cash Prizes for top racers

Bring the entire family as we will have many activities for the entire family (raffles, music, painting activities, etc.).

McCloskey lost his vision in his right eye, both legs, and suffers from tramatic brain injury when his convoy was struck in 2008. By joining us on race day, or making a donation, McCloskey will receive a specially adapted home, mortgage-free through the HFOT program.
