The final Fun Run/Walk/Ride of the year promises, as always, to be a festive and grand get-together. Kevin Bartlett Reserve is both scenic and central, urban and a little wild. It's the perfect place to join other type 1's for a strenuous workout, a relaxing aerobic event, or just to catch up and chew the lipids over some gourmet diabetic food. Because this is also our annual Christmas BBQ Brunch. Once again John and Kerri Thompson have moved mountains to organise the HypoActive end of year feed.
Last year's fantastic Christmas event
The day starts with a meet at the usual time - 9.30 am (SHARP!) Kevin Bartlett Reserve is in Burnley, nestling neatly in a knee-bend of the Yarra. The Melway reference for the reserve is: page 59, B1. If you reach FR Smith Drive you'll find plenty of parking close to the sign for Collingwood City Soccer Club and you can see the sheltered BBQ area and playground equipment from there.
It would be great if you could come along and join in with this, our last exercise event for the year, but if you can't then you're very welcome to come and join in the lavish spread put on by HypoActive and the hard work of John and Kerri (thanks guys). Bring the family or a friend: everyone is welcome to share.
HypoActive has a busy and fruitful year. Apart from all the usual calendar events running successfully, there has been an uplift in type 1's showing they care and becoming involved behind the scenes. This extra input really does mean that next year and beyond we will be looking at new and extra activities to help get type 1's motivated, educated and active.
So come along and celebrate health and success with all your favourite type 1's!
If you think you can join us, please let John know here so that we can make sure there's plenty for you to eat.
