PARK HILLS, KY (FOX19) - The family of the Notre Dame Academy senior who died in a car crash on spring break is giving back.

Maria Schaffstein's family organized a run in her memory last month for her birthday.  Supporters raised more than $16,000 for Saint Agnes Church in Park Hills, and her parents presented a check to the church Friday.

The church plans to use part of the money to set up a scholarship for students planning to attend Catholic high schools.
