more efficient way to put a group cells in a named field - Excel 2010

Experts,

I am listing a group of columns to be used a in a calcuation.  The columns are:

$C$13, $C$17, $C$21, $C$25,$C$29,$C$33.........$C$69

Is there a more efficient way to list these fields other than individually in a named field?  They are four rows apart.

I will be using the values of these rows in calculations and I am hoping not to have to repeat the set each time.

You select the cells, then enter the name in the NameBox just to the left of the Formula Bar at the top.

1. Select all the cells by holding down the CTRL key, and clicking on each cell.
2. Name the range of cells by typing the name in the name box. The name box should show the last cell you clicked on. Just click in the box, type the name you would like to give this range, then press ENTER.

If you give the range a name like "MidYearTotals", you can use that term in formulas, etc:

=Average(MidYearTotals)

for example.
