Join Wake Forest alumni, families, and friends all over the world by participating in Hit the Bricks 2023! On Thursday, October 5 teams of students, faculty, and staff will run 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.

Alumni, families and friends of Wake Forest are encouraged to participate virtually on a team of one, a regional team, or by forming 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!
