Public Prep Ultimate Pi Day 5K

March 14, 2015

Start time: 9:26:53am

Firefighters Field

Address: Roosevelt Island New York, NY

Help our Girls Prep public elementary and middle schools on the Lower East Side and in the Bronx develop the next generation of female mathematicians, technologists, engineers, and scientists on Ultimate Pi Day, 3/14/15.

Join us for the Girls Prep 3.14 Mile Run on Ultimate Pi Day, a once-in-a-century opportunity to run 3.14 miles on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 AM (celebrating the first 10 digits of Pi–the girls at Public Prep often memorize many more than that!), against the stunning views offered on Roosevelt Island — a 20 minute train ride from midtown Manhattan.

Our hope is that runners will raise an average of $1,000 each on CrowdRise, so we can ultimately provide each girl enrolled in our Girls Prep schools with a year of incredible STEM programming.

Awards: Awards will be given to the top three male and female runners overall in each race.  Age group awards in the 5K will be awarded to the top three in each the following age groups: 9 and under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 and over.  Our awards policy is available here.
