The HEARTLAND TOUR CORE TEAM is a group of volunteers who join the Tour for a full week in July. Each team member has signed up to provide the organization with some required service or expertise (we call it their chore). Core Team members support the community event, provide rider support and serve as role models for the general public. Each is dedicated to the goals and objectives of the Heartland tour and are personally committed to an active lifestyle.  A wonderful crew of medical students joins us each year to help with the many daily tasks associated with the Tour and to conduct medical research, this year we are studying the prevalence of pre-diabetes (a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease) in our province.
