ZSR Zeyphrs Hit The Bricks, 2013

Friday, October 4, 2013 2:07 pm

For this year’s Hit The Bricks fundraiser ZSR fielded a team of 10 players, each of whom ran at least 45 minutes straight in order to raise awareness and money for the Brian Piccolo Cancer Drive.

The team included Craig Fansler, Patrick Ferrell, Joy Gambill, Bill Kane, Rebecca Petersen, Chelcie Rowell, Susan Smith, Lauren Suffoletto, Roz Tedford, and Tanya Zanish-Belcher, who ran or walked while carrying a weighted backpack for a total of 8 hours, from 11am to 7pm.

Making the most of the double lap bonus for carrying the backpack, the team racked up an impressive 290 laps around Hearn Plaza (The Quad for us oldies) to place 5th in the Faculty/Staff division, out of 18 teams.

Hit the Bricks: 10th Anniversary

Hit the Bricks

Hit the Bricks is an annual student event to raise money for the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund. It’s a great WFU community-wide event that lasts for 8 hours. It has a faculty/staff division in which ZSR Library often fields a team. This year our team members were Susan (Captain), Hu, Mary Beth, Derrik, Rebecca, Joy, Craig, Travis, Peter and Patrick. It was a blistering hot day, but Team ZSR persevered to finish in 4th place. We managed to complete 286 laps over the course of the day which adds up to 77 miles! Our entry fee of $20 apiece contributed to the real purpose of the day – to raise funds to fight cancer. Thanks to all of the ZSR team for their willingness to support this great cause with their hard earned $$ AND their feet! Take a look at other pictures from the day.
