ATAS International, Inc. recently had teams involved in two fundraising events held in the Lehigh Valley.
The Lehigh Valley Health Network Via Marathon celebrated their 10-year anniversary of this event. ATAS had two teams in the 26.2 mile team relay. Thousands of runners competed, and the event raised money to benefit Via, which provides services for children and adults with disabilities. This is the fourth consecutive year that ATAS has participated, and it’s the first year they had two teams entered.
Four employees participated in the inaugural Lehigh Valley 9/11 Heroes Run for the Travis Manion Foundation. More than 250 runners, walkers and volunteers participated, raising over $6,500. The money will be used to empower veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations.
Peg Bus, human resources manager of ATAS, participated in the Via Marathon. She stated, “We fully support the employees of ATAS in giving back to our community by participating in many different fundraising events throughout the year. I was proud to run for such a worthwhile cause, and to run beside those with whom I work.”
