8:00 am – Pi Day 5K Race at West Forsyth High School. Join teachers, students and families for the 2nd Annual Pi Day Race. The Pi Day Race provides the perfect opportunity to build excitement around mathematics and science education!  Pi Day, is a fun celebration used by educators to draw attention to the important mathematical number pi. Pi, a transcendental number, is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter. Pi Day Race has an innovative twist! While many 5K runs are 3.1 miles, the Pi Day 5-K will be a 3.14 mile run/walk. We are encouraging schools, universities, businesses, and families to come out to run/walk together to support and foster excitement about mathematics and science education. The Pi Day Race 5k will beneifit Literacy Forsyth. The mission of Literacy Forsyth is to provide adult literacy services that educate, build self-sufficiency, and strengthen the community’s economic base. Literacy Forsyth and our partners have been successfully doing so since 1993, and we will continue to serve the Forsyth County community with your support.
