Gina's People: Skater Dude Who Knows No Limitations

On a weekly basis, Oscar Loreto Jr. can be found shredding it at the Downey Skate Park. By all accounts, pulling off some pretty sick moves. What makes them even more amazing, is that Oscar is missing his left foot. He was born with a congenital birth defect. Oscar is also missing his left hand and four fingers from his right. To strangers, he's disabled. To Oscar, he's just dude who knows no limitations.

His amazing attitude caught the attention of 'Adaptive Action Sports', a wonderful organization that believes in living without limits. They create and promote action sport camps, events and programs for youth and young adults living with permanent physical disabilities. Oscar is now one of their spokespersons and helps run skateboarding camps around the country.
