Dwyane Wade Joins The Sandals Foundation with Game Changer
The Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International, and Wade’s World Foundation, NBA Champion Dwyane Wade’s charitable organization, are partnering to raise funds for Game Changer, an integrated sports program to benefit youth in underserved communities in South Florida and the Caribbean.
Game Changer will upgrade and refurbish 11 multi-purpose sports courts in the Caribbean and South Florida, including one planned at the court at Marshall Williamson Park located in the heart of South Miami. Monies raised by the Sandals Foundation and Wade’s World Foundation will give underprivileged youth access to planned sports, recreation, a healthy lifestyle, and family engagement.
Dwyane Wade says why Wade’s World Foundation has partnered with the Sandals Foundation to create the Game Changer program: “South Florida is not only important to my foundation, it serves as a neighboring community to the Caribbean. The opportunity to partner with the Sandals Foundation was a natural progression to the work we do and affords us the chance to continue to expand our reach internationally providing today’s youth with safe and fun places to learn, explore, and develop their potential.â€
