More than 400 Seventh-day Adventists and friends recently ran across parts of the coastal city of Santa Marta in northern Colombia during the annual race to promote healthy living under the church’s “Let’s Move to Live” and “I Want to Live Healthy” initiatives.
Adventist delegations and friends from cities across the coastal region gathered early on Sunday, October 6, to do warm-up exercises and promote health as they invited onlookers to join the 3.7-mile (6-kilometer) race. It is the third event organized by the church in the Atlantic Colombian Conference (ACC) region.
“Our objective here was to promote a healthy lifestyle with a sporting event and create an interest in sports for children, youth, and adults,” said Joel Revollo, health ministries director for the ACC and main organizer of the event. “We wanted to allow for a family day with different church delegations and their friends across the Atlantic conference.”
