Run (or walk!) to empower young women during our Pi Day Dash on Wednesday, March 14.
Gixo is a revolutionary new fitness app that offers personalized, live classes taught by certified coaches that you can do from anywhere. Every month, Gixo hosts an in-app fundraising event benefiting a nonprofit. This month’s event centers around Pi Day, and benefits Girls Who Code. For every mile you walk or run during Pi Day Walk / Run class in the Gixo app, we will donate $10 to Girls Who Code.
“The quickest way to empowerment for women is creating economic opportunity. Girls Who Code is dedicated to close this gender gap in technology. They will reach 40K girls by the end of 2018. They are making real change.” — Selina Tobaccowala, Co-Founder, Gixo

March 14 aka 3.14 is celebrated as Pi Day all over the world. 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. This awesome math holiday provided the perfect excuse to help raise money for one of our favorite charities.
