Miami Heat champion Dwyane Wade is set to host Wade’s World on September 6th and 7th in his hometown of Chicago. This is the 10th year of services that Dwayne and his foundation have provided to communinties all over the US.
“I am very excited to host a weekend of charity events in my hometown of Chicago and to celebrate the ten years of service we have provided to communities across the country,” said Dwyane Wade. “I am especially looking forward to the Live to Dream Festival with Mayor Emanuel and the City of Chicago, which will inspire children to dream big by providing them with programs and support to help achieve their dreams. My foundation and I want to stress the importance of after school programs that help keep children focused and safe.
The mission of Wade’s World Foundation is to help inspire and provide support to community-based organizations that promote education, health and social skills for kids in at-risk situations so they have the necessary tools they need to leave a positive footprint within their community and succeed in their life experiences. Since the foundation launched in 2003, Wade and his family have been committed to giving back in Chicago, South Florida and throughout the country.
