Take the Roof off Winter

Take the Roof Off Winter: 

Take the Roof Off Winter is our winter active campaign that helps Nova Scotians of all ages improve their health and quality of life by being active during the winter months! This year we're partnering with Healthy Tomorrow Foundation and their Make Your Move campaign. We hope to reach Nova Scotians far and wide with an interactive and educational campaign.
