The Sandals Foundation has partnered with Dwayne Wade and Wade’s Foundation to launch Game Changer—an integrated sports programme to benefit youth and underserved communities in South Florida and the Caribbean.
Through sports, we feel that kids learn how to sacrifice, be a good teammate, and work hard
Through a three-year iconic relationship, both non-profit organizations will work closely together to raise needed funding to provide underprivileged youth with access to sports, recreation, healthy lifestyles and family engagement.
The programme will also provide upgrading and refurbishing of sports courts in the Caribbean and Miami, Florida. It will also offer mentoring, afternoon training and coaching sessions, sports equipment and apparel.

Sports is not only about becoming successful, it’s about making sure others around you succeed, and it helps you become what you want to become.
Just teaching our kids the importance of that on a basketball court, or on a golf course, on a football field, or whatever sports they’re playing, they can use that in their lives.
