Description

The Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International (SRI), and Wade’s World Foundation, NBA Champion Dwyane Wade’s charitable organisation, continue to raise awareness for their integrated sports programme Game Changer. Their global fundraising campaign was launched on CrowdRise, an online community that is committed to giving back and raising funds for great causes. Funds raised will build the programme’s first multi-purpose sports courts, as well as provide underprivileged youth with access to planned sports, recreation, a healthy lifestyle and family engagement. In all, the Game Changer programme will contribute to the upgrading and refurbishing of 11 multi-purpose sports courts in South Florida and the seven Caribbean islands, which the Sandals Foundation supports with educational, community and environmental initiatives. Partaking in the ‘Change the Game’ Challenge will help raise needed funding to materialise the athletic dreams of thousands of youth who would not have access to unique, holistic development without the assistance of the Game Changer programme. Both physical and mental wellness tools are key to inspire change in the lives of less fortunate children. It has been proven that young people who participate in sports display an attitude of teamwork and character and demonstrate discipline, leadership, respect and self-confidence. Furthermore, statistics show that children who are involved in sports while in high school are more likely to experience academic success, graduate from high school and stay active for a lifetime.
