Those 79 faculty and staff members walking like Frankenstein around the Cathedral of Learning Oct. 28 weren’t practicing for Halloween. They were members of the Be Fit Pitt initiative who were incorporating some exercise into their workday.

The approximate 1-mile loop around the Cathedral included four activity stations along the way.

Renee Rogers is director and faculty leader of Be Fit Pitt, which was created by the School of Education’s Department of Health and Physical Activity.

Be Fit Pitt is primarily a texting service that suggests activities that people can do right in their offices, as well as providing nutritional and research information on fitness.  For more information on Be Fit Pitt, go to
