Hit the Bricks 2020

Join Wake Forest Alumni all over the world by participating in Hit the Bricks 2020! This event typically features teams of students, faculty, and staff running around Hearn Plaza racing to see who can accumulate the most laps over the day. Teams also earn laps through raising money for the Brian Piccolo Cancer Fund.

This year, as the event goes virtual, alumni are encouraged to participate on a team of one, join a regional team, or form a team based on your shared Wake Forest experience! So lace up those shoes Deacs (even if they are size 18.34 like the Deacon himself) and let’s Hit the Bricks for Brian!

Registration is now open!
