John Marrable

John MarrableBesides working full-time, I enjoy being fit. I believe the fitter I am, the healthier I am, and daily tasks become easier. 

I'm the President of ParaFed Otago. I train and teach karate, go to the gym, and play table tennis.

I'm proud of being a black belt in karate, representing New Zealand in para-sport, and being the first paraplegic to complete a marathon in New Zealand.

As a leader, having a disability means I have contact with a wide variety of people, which has given me the ability to talk to anyone. I have also had to look outside the square to do what others consider easy.
