Jarrett Martin paralysed skydiverDUBAI // Taking a painful incident and turning it into something positive is how paralysed US skydiver Jarrett Martin has responded in helping to raise funds for research on spinal cord injuries.

The 25-year-old Dubai resident will be taking part in the Wings for Life World Run, a global charity race that takes place on 34 tracks across six continents at the same time. A run will be taking place on Sunday at the Dubai Autodrome, for the second year in a row.

“Being one of the few people in Dubai with a spinal cord injury and being very vocal about it, I got approached by the charity, and it’s all about finding a cure,” said the Wings for Life ambassador and qualified master parachute rigger at SkyDive Dubai.
