MIDDLEBURY – International Paralympic gold medalist and Middlebury native, Sam Grewe, will visit the Boys & Girls Club in Middlebury Thursday, January 28 to meet the kids and sign trading cards.

In October of 2015, 17-year-old Grewe set a meet record on his way to winning a gold medal in the high jump at the International “Paralympic Committee Athletics world Championships in Doha, Qatar.

At 13, Grewe was diagnosed with bone cancer and lost part of his right leg to prevent it from spreading. At the time he was a four-sport athlete. Eager to get back into sports, Grewe discovered Paralympic sports, which eventually led to gold in 2015.

Grewe will give a presentation to the members of the Indiana Kids program at the Club beginning at 4:30 p.m.
