FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Time to celebrate the greatest number in the universe: Pi!
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.
Proceeds will benefit the Asheville Initiative for Math at UNC Asheville and its Marvelous Math Club, which offers ongoing tutoring programs with the Housing Authority of the City of Asheville and Parent U, a program of Asheville City Schools.
The Pi Day Run is a chance to show your support for math literacy, which influences our ability to solve problems, understand statistical concepts like risk, and the ability 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.
