It was the reason for running. Sharing proceeds to help with the restoration of the Carnegie building, a project spearheaded by the Polk County Historical Society, was the purpose of this year’s third annual Pi Run. Several members of the board of the Polk County Historical Society were on hand on Tuesday, May 7 to accept a $1,000 check for the Carnegie restoration project from Junior Alex Skeeter, the president of Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) at the University of Minnesota Crookston. The race, hosted by ALD on April 20, 2013, included 100 runners in a 5K and 10K race along with 9 children participating in a fun run.
