NS Walks

Walking is said to be the perfect activity with its tremendous physical, mental and social benefits and is the most popular activity for all Nova Scotians, including those who are less active. However, the number one barrier Nova Scotians have cited as to why they aren’t more active is that they don’t have anyone to be active with. Walking groups can be a solution to this problem. NS Walks walking groups are inclusive and include those of all abilities. During this time of a global pandemic, we have learned more than ever the importance of helping people stay socially connected as a key to one’s health and well being. 

Goal: The goal of NS Walks is to create social supports to increase opportunities for people who are currently less active to enjoy the benefits of walking. Walking includes all abilities mobility methods.
