Welcome to the West Suburban 5K Cheetah Run "Hustle to Health", West Suburban SDA Church's first annual 5K! With the funds raised through this event, we will be able to invest back in Villa Park and neighboring communities through service and community projects to promote a healthy lifestyle. We are planning to hold two Health Fairs free to the public! These health fairs will educate residents on how to build and maintain healthy lifestyles and provide free medical advice and medical screenings. We thank you for your willingness to run/walk for the cause!
To renew your life with God's prescription for wellness. NEWSTART will get you there. Follow His principles and begin to live life to the fullest! You can live a longer, healthier, and a more fulfilling life just by making some better choices in your lifestyle. Decisions that can improve your health emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Let's get started. Just a few positive steps in the right direction can take you to a better place than you've ever imagined.
NUTRITION - Nutrition is the fuel that drives the whole system. More and more researchers, physicians and nutritionists are beginning to echo the same “Go plant-based!” Eating a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts will prevent many diseases and cause others to disappear, largely through anti-inflammatory properties.
EXERCISE - Action is a law of life. Activity includes physical and mental conditioning. Our goal is to be active in mind, body and spirit. Muscle tone and strength are lost without exertion, but exercise improves the health of body, mind, and spirit multiplying vitality and health.
WATER - Because the body is 70% water, keeping well hydrated and knowing what and when to drink are essential to health. Only water can create the proper environment for your blood to flow smoothly, help regulate your blood pressure, and promote vascular health.
SUNLIGHT - The sun is the established energy source ordained by God to sustain the cycle of life for plants and animals. Sunlight is supremely important for the body’s metabolism and hormonal balance.
TEMPERANCE - Using good things moderately and avoiding the bad is obviously wise, yet often hard to practice. Temperance can be neither bought nor earned, but is rather an important gift of God, a “fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22, 23).
AIR - The body’s most essential resource is air. More important than food or water, proper breathing and pure air are fundamental to good health.
REST - Restoration requires rest because sleep allows the body to renew itself. Many types of rest are important for health, but the sweetest rest follows labor. Rest is good sleep and also taking time to relax. Relaxation lowers blood pressure and reduces stress.
TRUST IN DIVINE POWER - Directly linked to physical health (Proverbs 3:5-6), trust in God is a gift leading to right choices. Trust in God speaks to the relationship between spirituality and healing. A link exists between faith and wellness.
