We are so proud of Zack Gonzalez, a young superstar, who has not only served as a wonderful volunteer to Generation Rescue but serves the autism community as an activist, comedian and author. Did we mention that he’s only 18!
This year, Zack was honored with the Outstanding Youth Volunteer award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals and we are so very proud of him.
