Fundraiser for local Paralympian

U.S. Paralympian Samantha Bosco accepts a donation from local bicycling club Impact Racing on Sunday during a fundraising event for Ms. Bosco at 42nd Street Bagels in Claremont. The restaurant gave her 20 percent of proceeds during their regular hours Sunday in order to offset expenses for Ms. Bosco’s trip to Rio de Janeiro for the Paralympics next month. Ms. Bosco’s was born with a posteromedial bow of the tibia and a calcaneal valgus foot, which required many surgeries and resulted in her right leg being an inch shorter as well as limited movement in her foot. She cycles with the assistance of a special cleat and pedals that allow more rotational movement. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
