March into Health 2018

The 2018 edition of March into Health will kick off on Thursday, March 1, at 10:?00 am. at Elgin Community College, with a program titled “Rethinking March Madness: Revolutionizing Healthy Living.”  March into Health is a month-long series of programs and activities offered throughout the Elgin area promoting physical activity and healthy eating.  “We are very concerned about the health of our residents” said Mayor David Kaptain, “and it has been proven that the best way to be healthy is through staying active and eating properly.  I want to encourage all Elgin residents to participate in the March into Health activities so they can reap the rewards of good health.”

Presented by Activate Elgin, March into Health will feature 24 different programs and activities that residents can participate in between March 1 and March 28. These activities will be offered at various times and partner sites throughout Elgin and offer participants the opportunity to attend fun events and possibly win great prizes.  

Gail Borden Public Library will host a large kick-off event on Saturday, March 3, from 1:00 – 3:30 pm. with a multi-faceted family event, featuring CircEsteem Family Performance and Interactive Family Fun.  The event will also include healthy snack sampling, a roaming fruit juggler, craft activities and partner informational tables. The event, which is free and open to all, will also be awarding some great raffle prizes.
