Hit the Bricks

Hit the Bricks is an annual campus-wide philanthropy program to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for cancer. Each year, teams of of students, faculty, staff, and alumni gather on Hearn Plaza taking turns running/walking laps around the Quad to show their solidarity in the fight against cancer. Throughout the day, participants, volunteers, and spectators enjoy fun activities, live music, and special guest speakers. The event concludes with a ceremonial remembrance lap before participants gather in front of Wait Chapel for a moment of silence to honor all those who have lost their lives to, or are fighting the battle against, cancer. All proceeds benefit the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research fund which provides discretionary funding to the Comprehensive Cancer Center.
