Specialty Athletic Training teamed up with The Autism Society of Oregon to bring Anthony Ianni to Portland, OR on June 4th, thanks to the Begonia Charitable Foundation. Anthony is a 24 year old young man that was diagnosed with PDD-NOS nearly 20 years ago and now travels giving anti-bullying presentations to schools around the nation. During his visit to Portland, we reached nearly 2,000 children from the ages of 7-13! CLICK HERE to check out Anthony's story.
