2016 Saskatoon Ambassador Ethan Greack 1Local Walk Ambassador: Ethan Greack

Ethan is 6 years old and lives in Martensville with his parents Garrett and Nicole and older sister, Taylor.  The whole family was shocked when Ethan was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was 19 months old. Ethan is on the severe end of the spectrum. He is nonverbal which creates daily struggles, but he is very good at finding ways to let us know what he wants and needs. Ethan loves music, sports, and the alphabet. His smile and laugh instantly brighten any one’s day.

Our team Ethan's Warriors has been part of the Saskatoon Walk from the beginning and we are looking forward to this year’s Walk as well as many more to come!
