Oro Valley Vice Mayor Lou Waters has been named the Honorary Race Director for the 2013 Arizona Distance Classic, in which he will participate in the Champion’s Mile, a one-mile walk for the elderly on March 24.

“What we try to do is celebrate those who have committed to a healthy lifestyle, and that fits very well with what Lou is doing,” said David Babner, director of the annual event. “It’s not so much about competing as it is about getting out and getting active, and that message resonated with us.”

Waters, a retired CNN anchor, continually sends a message to the retired community that staying fit should be a top priority.

“When I see people in walkers, and they don’t have to be – maybe if I can get one person…two people to buy into what’s happening, that’s reward enough for me,” said Waters. “It’s worthwhile. It’s never too late to start, and it’s always too soon to quit. Just get moving.”
