The 2013-2014 Relentless Tour: Ianni Project is a first of its kind grass roots initiative designed to help eradicate bullying across the state of Michigan.
Bullying is something that affects everyone in one form or another, but for children with autism the likelihood of being bullied is a near certainty, as up to 90% of children diagnosed with autism have experienced bullying while at school. But it doesn’t have to stay that way.
The Autism Alliance of Michigan’s own Anthony Ianni, one of the most sought after anti-bullying experts in Michigan as well as across the country, has pledged to visit and spread his message to 659 Michigan middle schools in one year.
Anthony’s story is one that reaches everyone. Diagnosed with autism at a young age, Anthony’s parents were told he would never graduate, never play sports, and would likely have to live in a group home for his entire adult life. Anthony was bullied extensively as a child due to his autism along with the fact that he grew to a height of 6’9″ at quite a young age.
However, Anthony defied the odds and not only graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Sociology, but went on to be the first known individual with autism to play college basketball. During his time at MSU he played on two Big Ten Championship teams and reached a Final Four.
