A special message from Dr. Nicholas Giacomantonio
Cardiologist, Founder and President of the Heartland Tour
Our mandate is to “encourage Nova Scotians to choose a more physically active lifestyle”.
Last year 2020 the Heartland Tour adapted – and went virtual. You responded - our largest registration and participation ever!
Thousands of Nova Scotians demonstrated incredible diversity of activities and renewed commitment to an active lifestyle.
The 15th annual Heartland Tour 2021 will be virtual.
Virtual in a way that will again engage thousands of Nova Scotians to be more active. Again the Heartland Tour will adapt, with more challenges, more prizes and more partnerships.
Throughout May, we will share more information on our exciting lineup of activities and challenges, designed to engage Nova Scotians of all ages and abilities.
While we will not be gathering in larger groups, we all have the opportunity to be active and enjoy our beautiful province, any activity, any place, any time.
The Heartland Tour is NOT a fund raiser and is Free to participate.
Thank you to our many volunteers and sponsors who make the Heartland Tour possible each year.
Stay well, stay active.
