Saugus resident Reese Bruno, 7, was jumping up and down in the bouncy house, a gross motor exercise that teaches movement breaks. “I wanted to donate to a great cause and support a great family friend [the DelGrecos],” her father, Richard, said. Three Revere High School graduates – Roy Booth ’10, Melissa Booth ’15 and Alan DeAngelis ’73 – walked for the Booths’ daughter, Marcella, 5, who is nonverbal but very social. “Today’s a celebration of being diff erent,” Melissa Booth said. “It’s coming together to unite with others who are going through the same things that we are going through.” Her mother, Bernadette DeAngelis, said the walk reinforces that children shouldn’t make fun of those who are at different levels, but rather that everyone is the same. Last year, they attended the walk at Harry Della Russo Stadium; however, she preferred the walk to be inside since they can hear what’s going on without distractions. “People won’t stay as long if were outside,” she said.
