Around the world, November is celebrated and acknowledged as Diabetes Awareness month and boy did we have a jam packed month or what. Here's a quick run down on what happened in November at Blue Circle Diabetes Foundation.
November run at ARAI Hills, Pune
Beautiful location, check. Friends, check. Lots of fun, check. We were happy to send off the rain gods and had a super fun run last month. See the full album of the November run here.
Delhi chapter photowalk
On a nippy Saturday morning, our Delhi friends got together in a pretty park and we had a fun time together followed by a healthy breakfast - what could be a better start to the day? We couldn't have asked for more.
School Awareness Programmes in Delhi
On November 14th, World Diabetes Day we organised a school diabetes awareness programme for teachers and nurses at Sri Ram school, Gurgaon. Under the guidance and support of the Principal, the school staff team were really enthused and eager to learn more about diabetes and how to handle the possible special needs of a child with diabetes in the classroom.
We also visited the Government School, Shalimar Bagh, Delhi which is an all-girls school and conducted a School Diabetes Awareness Programme there. Rohan organised a few activities for the girls, Chhavi gave them tips and pointers and our school going T1 volunteers, Kashni and Tanmay shared their experiences. Their parents were great support to us too.
We attended the ADECON conference in Delhi and connected with old and new friends.
Pune coffee meetup
There's nothing more fun than a lazy Sunday afternoon with coffee and brunch. There were new friendships and a lot of chatter about diabetes and other things at the Grandmama's Cafe in Koregaon Park, Pune. Abhishek is planning another exciting Pune event, stay tuned!

We bring to you the first of its kind diabetes themed charity calendar. What's special is that all 12 of our 'models' are people with diabetes and achievers in their own right. Be it 8 year old T1 Ovi who outruns us all at our monthly 5km runs or Charudatta who has lived with type 1 diabetes for over 30 years and doesn't fail to make our day with his big beaming smile or Priyanka (pictured below) who is a well known fashion designer, a wife, a mother to two and type 1 diabetic for 20 years.
