Hit the Bricks for Brian!

Wake Forest University students, faculty and staff participate in an eight-hour relay walk/race around Hearn Plaza beginning at 11 am on a thursday in September. Teams of seven to 15 participants compete to raise both money and awareness for the fight against cancer through the WFU Baptist Medical Center’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. Participants will walk a final remembrance lap for cancer victims and survivors, and the daylong event will end with a luminary ceremony at 7pm in front of Wait Chapel. Hit the Bricks has raised over $120,000 since the first race in 2003. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund. For more information go to
