Why I Walk - Leo Zanchettin

This post is by Leo Zanchettin of the Jacksonville Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Leo is the father of six, four of whom are on the autism spectrum.

Hi, there. My name is Leo Zanchettin, and I’ve got plenty of reasons to walk for autism. Actually, I’ve got four main reasons. Their names are Richard, Louise, Chris, and Nicholas—our kids who are on the autism spectrum. I’ve also got two other reasons. Their names are DeVaughn and Adele—our kids who are not on the spectrum.
