WATERLOO (KWWL) -

About 1,000 fourth graders from Waterloo took to the streets for the 17th annual Mayor's Fun Run.  The event was to promote the importance of healthy living.  The student who finished the race first says her healthy lifestyle is the reason she finished so quickly.

"I'll eat more healthy things than I do dessert," said Charlotte Gettman from Orange Elementary.  "Like I'll eat maybe more apples than I do ice cream."

KWWL's Ron Steele emceed the event.
