Hit the Bricks is a cherished Wake Forest tradition that unites the campus in finding a cure for cancer. Students, faculty, and staff join together in one of six divisions. Participants, along with many others enjoying the event, gather from 11 AM to 7 PM to run or walk laps around Hearn Plaza. Teams rotate runners, passing the baton between laps.
Throughout the day, campus groups, athletic teams, and special guests speak and provide entertainment to the crowd, building campus community and supporting one another in raising both funds and awareness for the Cancer Fund. To end the event, students and faculty walk a memorial lap in silence and gather in front of Wait Chapel to hear from two student speakers as well as a faculty speaker.
