InStep4Life 5K Fun Run San Antonio - Results

The results of the InStep4Life 5K Fun Run have been announced and are available at​. Congratulations to all the participants for a great run!

Adventists InStep for Life was created by the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to assist Adventist churches, schools and health care organizations in tackling the challenge of childhood obesity. Every conference, church, school, university and health care organization in the North American Division is encouraged to form an Adventists InStep for Life team to coordinate activities that inspire healthy eating and physical activity and further awareness of childhood obesity in their community.


The North American Division has set the following 4 annual goals for Adventists InStep for Life:

Increase physical activity by:

  1. Accumulating 2 million physical activity miles through walking and other physical activities

  2. 60% of Adventist students achieving the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (United States only) or NAD Active Lifestyle Award.

​​Focus on nutrition and increased fruit and vegetable servings by:

  1. Launching 100 summer feeding sites (at least one church and one school site per conference)

  2. Starting 100 new vegetable gardens or farmer’s markets (at least one church and one school garden or market per conference)

Engage kids, youth, parents, schools and the community in working together to fight obesity


This website offers information on how to develop an Adventists InStep for Life team that can plan and implement a strategy that works for your organization; information for carrying out the primary NAD goals of promoting physical activity, hosting a summer feeding site and starting a community garden; ideas for churches, school, universities and health care organizations; and more.

Each of us has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity and improving the health of individuals, families, and communities. Together we can make a difference!
