Zahoor’s Story

Amie Mills

By Get Active in partnership with We Are Undefeatable

Over 1 in 4 people live with at least one long-term health condition and these numbers are rising.

We Are Undefeatable is a national campaign to inspire and support people with health conditions to be active. Inspired by the real-life experiences of people with health conditions getting active despite the ups, downs and unpredictability of their condition. 


Zahoor hasn’t always focused on his health, which is part of what led to his type two diabetes. After that wake-up call, he wanted to find ways to look after his health, including moving more. Whether dancing around in the living room or playing cricket with his grandchildren, he’s made being active something that he enjoys. Zahoor finds all sorts of ways to keep moving, from going on brisk walks to playing with his grandchildren. He loves to dance, and will often switch on music and bust a move in his front room.
