Walk with the Mayor
Activate Elgin and the City of Elgin invite you to Walk with the Mayor. During the colder months, Mayor Kaptain will be walking at The Centre of Elgin. The walks are scheduled for the 1st Tuesday of every month, at 8 am, on the walking track. The mayor is an avid walker and encourages all Elgin residents to exercise regularly and enjoy the benefits of better health.
