Event Description and Awards


Hit the Bricks is both a participatory event and a team relay competition.

All students, faculty, staff and alums are encouraged to join the greater Wake community as we walk, skip, or run around Hearn Plaza to show our solidarity and to demonstrate our shared commitment towards finding a cure for cancer, this devastating disease which touches all of our lives and society.


Team and Free Agent Registration Options:

The multiple Relay Teams(7-15 members) are formed around six separate divisions: Freshmen, Open, Fraternity, Sorority, Graduate Schools, and Faculty/Staff.
