Kate Horan appointed to NZ Artificial Limb Service Board

Paralympian Kate Horan has been appointed to the New Zealand Artificial Limb Service Board for three years.

Kate who has represented New Zealand in Para athletics, winning a Silver at the Beijing Paralympics and now in Para cycling, said “I am delighted to accept this appointment onto the Board. As an amputee myself, I am fully aware of the importance of the Service and how it provides life changing prosthetics to New Zealanders.”

Kate was born with a congenital leg deformity which resulted in her lower left leg being amputated at the age of 5. Despite this, Kate has excelled in sport and continues to train towards representing New Zealand at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.

In addition to this Board role, Kate works part-time for Parafed Wellington as Sport Coordinator providing sport and recreation opportunities for young people with physical disabilities.

“Working with young people with disabilities resonates with me personally having experienced a similar journey myself. Being able to give back in a variety of ways, such as sitting on the Board, means I am able to make a difference to others lives. I see bringing my story to the Board role will provide a real context in the decision-making around this Service. I look forward to working with the Chair George Reedy and the other Board members, and CEO Sean Gray.”

The Board’s first meeting with Kate in attendance is next week, so she is literally jumping in with two feet.
