About Walkabout

Heart&Stroke Walkabout™  is an initiative of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia, Department of Health and Wellness and the Ecology Action Centre.

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.
