Universal Technical Resource Services Logs 10 Miles for The Mission Continues and America’s Veterans

For the fourth year, the Universal Technical Resource Services (UTRS) team will run 10 miles at the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia on May 1 to benefit The Mission Continues, an organization that empowers our nation’s veterans as they transition from deployment to civilian life.

“We’re honored to run to support a great charity like The Mission Continues that focuses on making sure our nation’s veterans successfully adjust to life at home by deploying them into the community,” said Marc Snyderman, UTRS Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel. “Our team has many active-duty reservists and veterans on staff doing mission-critical work supporting our warfighters, and we are thrilled to support an organization that shares our values and allows veterans to strengthen their skills for the good of the community.”

As an engineering and information technology firm that provides services to the Department of Defense and other government agencies, UTRS takes pride in rallying behind America’s veterans through both employment and the valuable community programs made possible by The Mission Continues.

Since 2012, funds raised by UTRS have benefited The Mission Continues’ Philadelphia Platoon, one of many local service platoons deployed nationwide who volunteer to tackle issues specific to their communities, such as mentoring at-risk youth, fighting to reduce childhood hunger, or striving to end veteran homelessness. Local fundraising for platoons allows The Mission Continues to set up mentoring programs, recruitment efforts and monthly service projects.

The Mission Continues also offers programs such as fellowships for post-9/11 veterans to serve 26 weeks with a local nonprofit organization that will utilize their passions and skills to better their communities. In 2015, the organization won the “Inspiring Hope Award” from the National Council for Behavioral Health in the Employment Category.
