The Sandals Foundation Partners With NBA Champion Dwyane Wade and Wade’s World Foundation
June 11, 2014 - Sandals Foundation - Promotions & Events
Celebrating its 5th anniversary, the Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts, has announced a three-year premiere partnership with NBA Champion Dwyane Wade and his charitable organization, Wade’s World Foundation. Together, the two non-profit foundations will launch programs and initiatives to benefit youth in underserved communities in the Caribbean and Miami.
Adam Stewart, President of the Sandals Foundation and CEO of Sandals Resorts, proudly takes this step towards fulfilling his commitment to “changing lives, shaping futures, and uplifting spirits” throughout the Caribbean. It is both Stewart’s mission and passion to elevate youth development in this region. This passion is shared by NBA Champion and Team USA Olympic Gold medalist, Dwyane Wade, who founded Wade’s World Foundation (WWF) in 2003 to highlight the education of youth, literacy, health and fatherhood.
The partnership’s first collaboration, Game Changer, will give underserved youth access to planned sports, recreation, healthy lifestyles and family engagement as well as and activities including new camps, afterschool training and coaching sessions. The program is set to debut later this summer.
