Dream Kid Alphonzo

My dream is to meet Cam Newton and to play Wide Receiver for the Carolina Panthers!

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.

Fonz is passionate about sports, as most young boys are. But his love for football and his knowledge on 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 is to play Wide Receiver for them.


There are several people and organizations we would like to thank for making this dream experience possible:
Beers and Burpees Crossfit Charity Event, Boxman Studios, The Arc of NC, All Points Trucking, The Carolina Panthers, Brandon Taylor, Themba Imagery, Donald Wilson

Alphonzo lives with Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD

Fonz was able to meet 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 Receiver team on the field! Cam even threw him a game winning pass!
