The event was creat- ed to support the EOD Warrior Foundation, but runners have the opportunity to also raise funds for a related char- ity. Tyler chose the Boulder Crest Foundation, a veteran- led group that uses Posttraumatic Growth to support com- UPD Urns Fundraises for Military Veteran Non-profit bat veterans, first responders, and their families who have experienced trauma. “I have seen how Boulder Crest Foundation changes lives and helps bring service men and women out of PTSD,” Tyler says. “We at UPD Urns are committed to giving back and making the world a better place and I want to thank our amazing funeral professional customers for their large donations to increase our contribu- tion. We are going to work to increase our efforts every year to give back.” In addition to donating funds to Boulder Crest Foundation, UPD Urns will also be donating 150 units of a custom made 24K gold plated battle cross jewelry keepsake. UPD Urns offers cremation urns and cremation jewelry to funeral homes and cemeteries worldwide. The compa- ny recently completed a full-size bronze battle cross for the United States Navy, with another project scheduled in 2021. UPD Urns ships cremation urn products out of Dallas, TX and Manassas, VA, the greater Arlington and Washington, DC areas.
