Meet Macari! This 16-year-old dreamer is from Charlotte, NC, and has a smile that would light up even the darkest of rooms. Macari is the life of the party wherever he goes and never fails to turn a stranger into a friend.
Macari was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, lives with a developmental disability, and is legally blind in his left eye. These conditions pose challenges in his day-to-day life that his peers do not face. However, Macari’s joy is founded on a positive attitude and a passion for living with a grateful heart. One of Macari’s biggest sources of joy is football! He loves the sport because of the electric atmosphere, the teamwork between players, and the opportunity to cheer on others.
In his free time, you will find Macari at every Hopewell High School football game cheering on his favorite team. Football is a way in which Macari feels he can connect closely to those around him. He has never gotten the chance to attend a college football game, but all that is about to change!
Macari’s ultimate sports dream is to be a VIP at the ACC Football Championship. He dreams of meeting the athletes and coaches of these incredible collegiate programs, along with experiencing the electric energy of the crowd!
