Alfred Hernandez is 58 and has been in Special Olympics (SO) for eight years. He has competed in soccer, basketball, and now flag football.

Alfred likes Special Olympics because, “I have made a lot of friends and I like to play sports.”

Alfred lives with his sister Annabelle Hernandez and she said, “SO gives him motivation and he does not forget a practice or game. SO puts me at ease that Alfred is happy. I am so grateful that the coaches and everyone involved are giving their time to volunteer.”

During the week, Alfred works at a local SCV day program.
