Nupur Lalvani

Nupur has been a type 1 diabetic since she was 8 years old and has always loved sport. She runs an NGO called Blue Circle Diabetes Foundation to create awareness about diabetes. Nupur has run marathons (42km) and ultra marathons too (over 42km). She represented India as a Medtronic Global Hero in Minneapolis a few years ago. She leads the Pune chapter of Type One Run which is a global initiative to bring diabetic runners together. Type One Run is a programme of Beyond Type 1 which is a non-profit organization co-founded by Nick Jonas who’s type 1 diabetic himself. Nupur‘s love for long distances and curiosity about how far she can push her body has led her to participate in the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker with her T1 friends. When she’s not running long distances or trekking up mountains for fun, Nupur enjoys some MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), strong coffee and writing.
