A record-breaking Hit the Bricks

On a blue-sky day this month on Hearn Plaza, the beloved Wake Forest tradition Hit the Bricks attracted 118 teams -- a record. And no, your eyes do not deceive you: that was a running banana followed by a dinosaur back in the pack during the Wacky Costume portion of the event. The daylong, relay-style race drew 1,400 walkers and runners from the ranks of faculty, staff and students. Babies in strollers and dogs joined the fun, too.

Preliminary totals -- donations are still arriving -- show over $50,000 raised for the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund to support the nationally recognized Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center's Comprehensive Cancer Center. The annual event raises money and cancer awareness, and it concludes with participants' final, silent lap around the Quad in remembrance of those whom cancer has affected. University photographer Ken Bennett captured the joyful and poignant moments during the day. I invite you to take a look.

Hope to see you at Homecoming events today --
