AcT1vate is a weekend dedicated to get you the best information and tools to help you exercise with more confidence.
It is full of great speakers, latest research, and a brilliantly unique opportunity to meet others with type 1 diabetes with similar interests in exercise.
In 2012 the AcT1vate edition will focus on nutrition. It is suitable for:
- someone who isn't very active but would like more information about management strategies in order to become more active
- someone who regularly exercises but finds it all frustrating with the 'highs and lows' exercise can bring to your overall diabetes management
- partners who are frustrated with their type 1 loved one seemingly always in trouble with lows following exercise
- parents of kids with type 1
- kids with type 1
- health professionals who are not exactly sure how best to guide their patients with type 1 diabetes on appropriate strategies for exercise (AcT1vate has CPD points available for GPs and CDEs)

The Tour for Type 1 will be held from October 12-16, 2011 and involves following the Jayco Herald Sun Tour professional bike race. You get to ride (not race) each stage, watch the finish of the pro races (men and women), and then kick back and enjoy dinner with the entire Tour family (riders, staff and event folk). It is an amazing opportunity to live like a pro without actually being one!
Proceeds from the event will support kids living with type 1 diabetes, helping them to achieve their sporting goals.
The ride is not for the faint hearted. There are some serious kilometres to cover on the bike, and for five days it will be very taxing on you. But the rewards and access you will have will be all worth it.
