Alphonzo “Fonz” McDonald


Alphonzo “Fonz” McDonald is an amazing 15 year old Charlotte resident. The teenage years can be some of the toughest years growing up, but then adding Autism and ADHD on top of that makes things a little more challenging for Fonz. He is not alone in his daily battle. He has an amazing support system from his loving adoptive mothers, siblings, and friends at The Arc of North Carolina, our referral partner. His Dream: Fonz is passionate about sports, but his love for football and his knowledge of the game and players is what sets him apart from the rest! He is a huge Cam Newton and Carolina Panther fan, and his dream was to play Wide Receiver for them. Fonz was able to meet some of the Carolina Panthers and attend a Panthers practice, where he watched his favorite players on the field. After practice, he joined Cam Newton and the Wide Receivers on the field! Cam even threw him a game winning 80-yard touchdown pass!
