The University of Maine student group Male Athletes Against Violence will sponsor an event at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 30 in Alfond Arena to raise awareness about relationship violence.
The event, Unwrapping the Not-So-Sweet Truth of Relationship Violence, also will be an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the largest number of candies unwrapped at one time.
The current world record of 614 candies unwrapped at one time is held by Tarleton State University.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will include speakers and information tables by Spruce Run, Rape Response Services and the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence. For those participating in the record book event, wrapped candies will be provided.
