Dowdy-Ficklen getting ready for Third Annual 'Storm the Stadium'

Are you ready to 'Storm the Stadium'?

The 3rd annual 'Storm the Stadium' takes place Saturday March 17 at ECU’s Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, starting at 8am.

Participants will walk or run the 3,200 steps in the stadium, all to support East Carolina University's Student Veteran Services.

If the 3,200 steps aren’t enough, the ‘Ultimate Storm the Stadium’ is returning again this year for those really wanting to challenge themselves.

In addition to the lower level steps, participants can take on the ramps and the upper level steps, along with some calisthenics stations throughout.

Organizers say the physical challenge of running the stairs is their way of recognizing the hard work that our service members do every single day.

For individual registration, it’s $25 for the regular storm the stadium and $45 for the ultimate.

For Team registrations, it’s $20 per person for the regular storm the stadium and $35 per person for the ultimate.

This year you can also "take the escalator" if you wish to donate, but are unable to attend or participate in the event.

WITN is a proud sponsor of Storm the Stadium and just like the last two years, we will have our own team taking on the 3,200 steps!
