Heart&Stroke Walkabout Team

Heart&Stroke Walkabout™  is an initiative of Heart & Stroke Nova Scotia, and Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture & Heritage.

Our goal is to help Nova Scotians discover the magic of walking and realize the physical and mental benefits of walking within their communities. It’s about changing the way we think about walking—putting feet back on the streets and walking back in the hearts and minds of Nova Scotians.
