3rd Annual Pi(e) Fun Run/Walk
In honor of Pi Day, UNC Asheville is hosting a community fun-run. Run or walk (or skip or trot) the 3.14 mile distance, which celebrates Pi’s value. The event is open to the public and has a nominal registration fee of $15.00, which includes a t-shirt and swag bag.
Proceeds will benefit the Asheville Initiative for Math at UNC Asheville and its Marvelous Math Club at Pisgah View Apartments. Marvelous Math Club uses math as a catalyst to build leadership skills, create community and provide a space where elementary school students can grow academically and socially.
The Pi Day Run is a chance to show your support for math literacy, which enhances our ability to solve problems, understand statistical concepts like risk, and to communicate effectively with numbers. Math literacy is an essential skill in our current workforce environment and will continue to grow in importance for personal economic success.
