Gulati, who underwent a kidney transplant in 2010, was motivated to run the marathon to keep herself fit and change the thinking of people that organ transplant survivors can’t run a marathon.
With an aim to spread the message among people to stay fit and healthy, Shibani Gulati, a kidney transplant survivor, will be running 21 km in Tata Mumbai Marathon for the fifth time.
I hope people take up the initiative to donate organs and make others aware of it.’’After Mumbai marathon, Gulati is planning to run for an international marathon to spread the message of organ donation.
The negative emotions of the people and the refusal by fitness trainers encouraged me to give my best and complete the 21-km run.
While slowly I started walking for two hours, in 2012, I ran my first marathon for 3 km without any practice from the fitness trainers.
