Lucy’s condition affects her balance, and her walking and running abilities. She struggles with her coordination and core stability as well. All exercises are geared towards improving these areas and helping Lucy to be more independent and have more control over her own movements.
Outside of Heel and Toe Lucy loves to go horse riding, trampolining and doing balance exercises. She also goes to a swimming club and would love to swim in the Paralympic Games one day.
At Heel and Toe she has made good friends with her co-buddy Phillip and she loves working with the therapists, getting better and improving in exercises and everyday life. Her confidence has greatly improved, as has her walking and climbing abilities.
Lucy loves taking part in events that help raise funds and awareness of Heel and Toe, including the Junior GNR, GNR and the zipslide.
