Ready to get more steps in? The Leach Theatre’s 15,000 Step Challenge is back! The Step Challenge will begin Tuesday, January 14th from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the last day Tuesday, February 25th. During this time, Leach Theatre’s 180-step auditorium and lobby will be open. Our staff will crank up the music and the lights so challenge takers can exercise indoors while it’s too cold to do so outdoors.
As a special incentive to get moving the first two weeks, walkers can earn a free ticket to the January 25th performance of Ryan & Ryan, the dynamic father-son piano duo, for every 4,000 steps walked. These steps also count towards the 15,000 steps necessary to win a free ticket to either of the remaining Campus Performing Arts Series shows, Driving Miss Daisy or The Drifters & The Platters.
To participate in the step 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. The challenge route
includes the steps, walkways, and aisles of the Leach auditorium, and steps and
walkways on both floors of the lobby of Castleman Hall.
Ticket prizes are limited to Missouri S&T faculty, staff, and students.
