At HypoActive, we believe diabetics should harness their insulin injected engines.
Exercise promotes a whole range of health benefits, and for diabetics, this is especially important. But it's not easy. It can be complicated and frustrating. No one wants hypos (or hypers) during or after exercise.
The mission statement for HypoActive is: to inspire and enable the Type 1 community to live a more physically active lifestyle.
We are your peers. We too go through the same challenges surrounding exercise in a busy lifestyle while managing type 1 diabetes. We welcome anyone who is interested in exercise regardless of their current level of activity and experience.
Our ever-popular social run or walk or ride - or just come along for a coffee - is set to meet at the end of March at Brighton. As luck would have it, our Juniors Program event is also taking place in Brighton that morning, so why not come along and spend some extra time giving support to those young people with type 1 who are taking part in the Gatorade Triathlon Series Race 5.
Once again, HypoActive is forming a team for this awesome cycling relay event. 520 km across Victoria's western plains, from the Murray River to the Mouth of the Moyne at Port Fairy - in just 24 hours.
HypoActive reaches Port Fairy in 2013
This is a great opportunity to get out there in a massive high-profile Melbourne event wearing your HypoActive running gear and showing how type 1's won't be stopped from getting active and healthy. Whether you run fast or take your time, show the world you can do it!
HypoActive MegaSwim Captain and long-term active HypoActive Laura Rostron isn't just leading the gallant type 1 Stingrays this year: she's organising the first HA Junior Program event for 2014. The Active Feet Fun Tri at St Kilda is held on 30th March and Laura is gathering a team of young people to show they can manage their type 1 diabetes and take on this hefty event.
