Thank you for making Nova Scotia Walk Day a HUGE success!

Posted on May 16, 2013

Heart&Stroke Walkabout™ celebrated five years of success with walkers all across the province. In total 157 walks were registered on our website including our three Heart and Stroke celebrations in Yarmouth, Halifax and Sydney. In total more than 1750 people committed to pa

rticipating in a walk on walk day through our online tool.  We know that number is  just a portion of all of the grass-roots walks that took place across the province on May 8th. In addition to community support, we had great pa

rticipation from municipal and provincial government Departments. Elected officials took part in events across the province. At our Halifax event approximately 40% of the legislative assembly participated in our Walk as well as many senior officials from the Department of Health and Wellness and the Deputy Mayor of

HRM. The Honourable Leo Glavine moved to adopt a resolution in Legislature declaring May 8th Nova Scotia Walk Day. Read the resolution.
