Only three days in and already nearly 150,000 steps have been logged in the Leach Theatre Step Challenge by more than 20 walkers. Want to join in? It’s not too late to get started! Let’s together reach half a million steps! Step Challenge hours are 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and continue every Tuesday and Thursday until Thursday, February 23. 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, walkers can earn a free ticket to the February 3 performance of Brian Owens and The Mighty Pines in Homegrown Soul for every 4,000 steps walked. These steps, however, will not count towards the 15,000 steps necessary to win a free ticket to one of the remaining Campus Performing Arts Series shows:
Aquila Theatre: Pride and Prejudice – Saturday, February 25, 2023
The Kay Brothers – Friday, March 10, 2023
To participate in the step challenge, check in with your Miner ID card and your step counter at the Leach Theatre Box Office in Castleman Hall 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.
