Juan Diego Pedevila is a 12-year-old from Woodbury, MN with a joyful demeanor and a magnetizing presence-which works out well for someone who loves being around people. Juan Diego has an H3F3A mutation, which impacts his ability to walk and communicate. This year, Juan Diego is Gillette’s Walk & Roll ambassador, putting him, his family and his friends at the heart of this annual event.
“All of the people who surround Juan Diego see him in a different light at Walk & Roll,” says his mom, Claudia. “The event celebrates people with disabilities. We’re together and having fun, and people see that disabilities aren’t something to be afraid of.”
