SANDALS FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH NBA CHAMPION DWYANE WADE
Thursday 5th June 2014

New YORK, NY (JUNE 5, 2014)—Celebrating its 5th anniversary, The Sandals Foundation, the official philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International (SRI), 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 International, 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.

“We couldn’t think of a more perfect partner for our foundation than Dwyane Wade,” said Adam Stewart, President of the Sandals Foundation.  “His commitment to changing the game, both on and off the court, is iconic.  We know that working together we can make a real difference by implementing programs that will have a positive effect amongst children and within the community.

Commenting about the collaboration with the Sandals Foundation, Dwyane Wade said “This partnership was a natural fit for my Wade’s World Foundation as we both share the same mission to provide today’s youth with the building blocks for success.  I look forward to extending our reach internationally to make a positive impact in the lives of children.”

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.
