“I made many friends and did activities that I would never have imagined before!”
45 years old - Figueres
I am a physical education teacher, almost 7 years ago I went to get a ball from a roof and the roof gave way. I have a complete spinal cord injury as a result of that fall. After about 2 years of injury, I had the need to learn to use a wheelchair to be totally autonomous when I am out. That was my main motivation, but when I arrived at the Institut Guttmann, I discovered many more things and people who helped and motivated me.
I was able to take part in activities like diving, basketball, paddle tennis, handbike… a whole range of options that you can take up or not, but that opened up a new world for me. I discovered Sports&Life Guttmann Club and I made the most of it! I made many friends and did activities that I would never have imagined before!
