Members of the University of Maine swimming and diving team will attend the presentation of a $7,500 check to Spruce Run in Bangor on Thursday.
The money was raised through the inaugural Erin’s Run: 5K Road Race. This year’s race was held in Bangor in April to honor Erin McGrath Woolley, a former UMaine student, and in support of Spruce Run, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those affected by domestic abuse.
Several swim team members competed in the race and played a major role in organizing the event.
Total funds raised during this year’s race were $15,000. Funds will also go toward a scholarship for a swim team member.
