Over the past nine decades, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Xi Omega Chapter, has demonstrated a rich history of community service and commitment to education. The members continue to value the mission of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. – service to all mankind. Xi Omega Chapter, in collaboration with the Pearl and Ivy Educational Foundation, Inc.

Boyd 5K Race for Education Sunday, September 25, 2022.  This event has raised over $60,000 since 2013 and supports PIEF's initiative to provide college scholarships for District of Columbia high school students.

Norma E. Boyd was a native Washingtonian who spent her 97 years of life dedicated to educational and humanitarian pursuits for children. Ms. Boyd was an incorporator and founding member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She also was a charter member of the Xi Omega Chapter.

Established in 1988, PIEF is a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is to provide scholarships to deserving and exemplary college-bound high school seniors and continuing college students in the District of Columbia. PIEF is comprised of college-educated, professional women – community volunteers who are dedicated to serving the needs of District residents.

PIEF serves as the fundraising arm of its sister organization, Xi Omega Chapter, the oldest and largest graduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. established in Washington, DC. In addition to annually awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships with PIEF, Xi Omega also provides an array of service programs that focus on educational enrichment, health and wellness, family strengthening, environmental ownership, and global impact. PIEF is the primary funder of Xi Omega's service programs through community grants, and often partners with Xi Omega in promoting and executing these programs.

Being as though I am an educator myself teaching at a DCPS School in Southeast, DC, it was imperative that I ran this race in support of education. I am a DC Native, born and raised in Southeast DC as well as attended elementary school, middle school, and high school in DC. I went off to college in NC and everyday I see the struggle that DC students endure when it comes to scholarships and attending college. I think it is great that PIEF host this marathon every year since 2013 to support these scholars because once upon a time, I was them. I am grateful to be a part of something so big and giving. That is what I was born to do! Thank you for allowing me to run this race and I look forward to many more to come.
