Since the inception of the Wade’s World Foundation in 2003, Dwyane Wade has welcomed more than 10,000 children from the Chicago and South Florida areas to attend a three day basketball camp. Boys and girls, ages 8-16, learn basketball fundamentals, develop life-skills, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and are granted a chance to demonstrate their abilities in a friendly, yet competitive environment. Dwyane has endeavored to also instill the importance of hard work, integrity and discipline into the youth. Camp guests have included both WNBA and NBA athletes such as Alonzo Mourning, Quentin Richardson, and Tyrus Thomas.
