Hit the Bricks kicks off 2007 Brian Piccolo Cancer Drive


September 18, 2007

Wake Forest University students, faculty and staff will compete in an eight-hour relay race around Hearn Plaza beginning at 11 a.m. Sept. 20, as teams of seven to 15 participants compete to raise both money and awareness for the fight against cancer.  The fifth annual Hit the Bricks event will raise funds for the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. 

At 7 p.m., participants will walk a final remembrance lap for cancer victims and survivors, and the daylong event will end with a luminary ceremony in front of Wait Chapel. 

Hit the Bricks has raised nearly $38,000 since the first race in 2003.  All of the proceeds will be donated to the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund.
