Notre Dame Pi Day 5K

The Society of Schmitt Fellows and the Association for Women in Science at Notre Dame co-host the ND Pi Day 5K. All proceeds from the run will benefit running and STEM programs at Harrison Primary through the Boys and Girls Club. This amazing organization provides primary school students with a safe and fun space after school, while teaching them how to love and care for themselves and others through healthy activities-culminating in their own 5K run. Last year, the proceeds went towards the Boys and Girls Club's Running Programs, where they bought:

  • Running Shoes
  • Snacks
  • ProgramFees
  • 5K Practice Race at Harrison Primary Support for Boys and Girls Club STEM programs

While the financial goal of the race is to raise money for running and STEM programs at Harrison Primary, our other hope is to use Pi Day to educate the community about math and science.

We'll have a variety of activities aimed at creating learning opportunities for all ages. If you're not a runner but would still like to contribute to this cause, we're looking for volunteers to help out the day of the race. We'll also be selling pie, beverages and other snacks after the race to non-runners, so if you'd like to just come to cheer people on and experience the festivities, you're more than welcome!
