Teen Starts Tennis Club for Children with Autism

(July 3, 2014) -- Aditya Mantri, who plays tennis for Columbus North High School in Columbus, Indiana, wants to help make a lasting impact in the lives of those with autism. Mantri founded a Columbus location of the popular tennis non-profit organization "ACEing Autism."

ACEing autism was founded in 2008 by Richard Surling & Dr. Shafali Jeste in Boston, Massachusetts. Since then, more than 30 ACEing Autism locations have formed around the country.
