This Thursday, Wake Forest University students, faculty and staff will compete in an eight-hour relay race around Hearn Plaza beginning at 11 am at Hearn Plaza (The Quad). Teams of seven to 15 participants compete to raise both money and awareness for the fight against cancer through the Wake Forest University 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 7 pm in front of Wait Chapel. The is an admission cost to participate – but absolutely free to those who wish to observe and cheer. More information is available here.
Hit the Bricks has raised nearly $100,000 since the first race in 2003. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund.
