Activate Elgin and the City of Elgin are partnering to get Elgin residents out and exercising on a regular basis through the newly launched Walk with the Mayor Program. “I want to encourage all Elgin residents to exercise regularly, so that they can enjoy the benefits of better health. I am an avid walker and invite our residents to walk with me when I come to visit their neighborhood” stated Mayor Kaptain. All walks will start at 6:30 pm and last approximately 45 minutes. There are two more scheduled walks: August 15 at Settlers Park in the Providence neighborhood and September 5 in Unity Park in the Neighborhood of Southeast Elgin, Elgin residents are encouraged to come out and walk with the Mayor to improve their fitness level and meet their neighbors.
