Pie Day Pi K was March 12, 2017 Thanks to everyone who participated!

This 3.14 Kilometer (1.95 mile) downtown Durham run is hosted by Scratch Bakery and Precision Race and benefits Durham Habitat. All finishers will receive a Crostada (personal pie/tart)! Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day, celebrated around the world, is not just for math geeks anymore. It is now PIE Day for foodies, runners, walkers, AND math geeks alike!

Stay tuned for info on the 2018 event!

Habitat Success Stories

Anita and her sister thought they were experiencing night sweats but realized that it was raining inside their home. Habitat partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield to replace their roof. “I used to go to bed every night and the rain would be all over my face but not anymore. Thank you.”
