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.
