Are you looking for a way to stay in shape or exercise during cold winter weather? Your campus theater is opening its doors from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for four weeks for the “Leach Step Challenge.” The challenge is open to faculty, staff and students, and will run from Monday, Jan. 22, to Friday, Feb. 16.
The theater’s 140-step auditorium and lobby will be open. The staff will kick on the theater lights, rev up some music and let you get your steps on. The theater steps are not as steep as a standard stairway. If you log 8,000 steps on the Leach Theatre stairs and walkways, you’ll win a free ticket to an upcoming show at Leach.
To participate in the steps challenge, check in with your Miner ID card and your step counter at the Box Office at any time between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Step counters can include pedometers, wearable fitness trackers such as FitBits, and phone apps. Sign in with your starting step count and then sign out with your ending step count when you’re finished.
Ticket prizes are limited to Missouri S&T faculty, staff and students. The challenge route includes the steps, walkways and aisles of the Leach auditorium, and steps and walkways on both floors of Castleman Hall’s lobby.
