Mayor's Fun Run encourages 4th graders to get healthy


Nearly one thousand Waterloo fourth graders had quite the workout Tuesday with Mayor Buck Clark.

It was the 14th year for the Mayor's Annual Fitness Day Fun Run.

All fourth graders in Waterloo participate each year running one mile against the mayor.

This year, the race was held at the Riverloop Expo and has extra meaning as Waterloo is now a Blue Zones community.

"You bet it's important. There is going to be more really soon that's coming on the Blue Zones project. Exercise and just your daily activities with their habits and eating habits. This is really important and it's great addition to that program," said Mayor Clark.

This years winner was Carley Caughron, 9.

Our very own Ron Steele was this year's emcee.
