For Portland's 35th annual Shamrock Run, UP's "Super Team" rasied $785.80 for the Bill Reed Scholarship Fund at UP. The Shamrock Run designates any team with more than 75 members as a "Super Team" and donates $5 per person to the charity of the team's choice. UP has been a "Super Team" for the past two years with 157 runners this year.
