Dozens storm ECU stadium to support programs for student veterans

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Dozens of people braved the rainy weather Saturday to storm the ECU stadium.

Both young and old walked and ran exactly 3,200 steps inside ECU’s stadium. Many participants were on teams of four to five people, with everyone encouraging each other to complete the mission.

One ECU ROTC student says this was one of the best workouts he’s had.

“It was a lot more stress on your quads and on your calves because it was the up and down movement instead of running straight so it was hard because I don’t usually do that type of thing,” said Harold Platenkamp. “It was good.”

The proceeds from Saturday’s event support programs and scholarships for student veterans.

ECU says there will be another Storm the Stadium event next year.
