Rio Woolf was born without a tibia, knee or ankle joint, and had to have his lower right leg amputated at just 14 months old. Despite this, sports-mad Rio has never allowed his leg to prevent him from enjoying an active, energetic lifestyle that many boys of his age are able to lead.
Since he was very young, Rio and his parents have been members at David Lloyd Bushey, a place that has helped them to focus on their son’s “abilities rather than his disabilities”, through taking part in our kids’ activities. Rio’s parents have also had the chance to enjoy time to themselves: while Rio is having fun with his friends, they can spend an hour in the gym or relax in the club’s lounge areas.
Take a look at their story below, and find out how David Lloyd Bushey has enhanced family life.
