Ready to get more steps in? The Leach Theatre 15,000-step challenge is back. Participate in the challenge 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Leach Theatre until Tuesday, Feb. 25.
During this time, Leach Theatre’s 180-step auditorium and lobby will be open. The staff will crank up the music and the lights so challenge takers can exercise indoors.
As an incentive to get moving the first two weeks, walkers can earn a free ticket to the Jan. 25 performance of Ryan & Ryan for every 4,000 steps walked. These steps also count toward the 15,000 steps necessary to win a free ticket to either of the remaining Campus Performing Arts Series shows, “Driving Miss Daisy” on Feb. 22 or The Drifters and The Platters on April 25.
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. 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.
