Planning is well underway for the 2019 HEARTLAND TOUR. Please plan to join us and bring family members and friends along with you. You can keep posted by joining our mailing list (under "contact us") and by friending us on Facebook (@HeartandTourNovaScotia). Daily event details will be shared under "The Tour" tab when finalized. Registration will open early in May.
The HEARTLAND TOUR is a public awareness and engagement campaign presented annually by the Cardiac Cycling Society of Nova Scotia. Our team of volunteers works with private and public partners, community leaders and people like you to encourage Nova Scotians to choose a more physically active lifestyle.
The HEARTLAND TOUR is not a fund-raising campaign. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, we offer free registration. We want you, not your money! And, we will give you a t-shirt, nutrition at rest stops, and a chance to win prizes.
The HEARTLAND TOUR is advancing medical science by using the Tour as an opportunity to learn more about population health. In 2018 and 2019 our team of Dalhousie University School of Medicine students is focused on increasing our knowledge of the incidence of Type II Diabetes. Tour participants can get their A1c levels tested (blood sugar) to provide extremely important medical information related to Diabetes. This not only adds to our understanding of the incidence of Diabetes but provides those tested with the results for appropriate follow-up with their physician. Know your A1c, another reason for joining us on the 2019 Tour.
