Cherry Hill Company Sending 20 Runners to Broad Street Run to Raise Money for Veterans Charity

At one Cherry Hill company, the dress code these days calls for running shorts.

Employees at UTRS are so enthusiastic about raising money for a veterans charity that 20 of them will be running in this year’s Broad Street Run, on Sunday, May 6.

UTRS is an engineering and information-technology firm that specializes in providing services to the Department of Defense. Many employees are veterans and active-duty reservists.

The runners – as well as other employees – are raising money and awareness for The Mission Continues, a charity that helps veterans assimilate into civilian life. The organization awards fellowships for veterans to serve at local non-profits, addressing key educational, environmental or social issues. Employees at UTRS hope to raise $10,000, enough to pay for one fellowship.

The runners’ contingent was organized by Chief Operating Officer Marc Snyderman, a longtime runner who was inspired by the story of The Mission Continues founder Eric Greitens, a former Navy Seal commander. Two officials of the charity will be joining the UTRS contingent in the Broad Street Run.

The company recently held a fundraiser for the charity at P.J. Whelihan’s Pub in Cherry Hill.
