Mayor Jonathan Rothschild is asking Tucsonans to take steps to be healthier in the New Year by participating in, "Walk 100 Miles With the Mayor."

Those who reach that milestone, walking or running, between January and June 2013, will receive recognition from the Mayor's Office.

Tucsonans can "Join the Mayor's TEAM" at to sign up and log their miles. TEAM stands for Together, Eat Well, Achieve and Move. The site features a calendar that lists area walks and runs.

 Rothschild is scheduled to announce the program on Friday along with Randy Acetta, Past President of Southern Arizona Roadrunners and a member of the Mayor's Health & Wellness Task Force.
