D-Wade Gets the Assist Award

Dwyane Wade continues to set great examples as an NBA All-Star, Champion and all-around great guy. Wade who is still recovering from shoulder surgery was presented the "Community Assist Award" for his outstanding community service initiatives and giving back.


"In recognition of Dwyane Wade’s outstanding efforts in the community and for his ongoing philanthropic work, the NBA has honored the Miami HEAT guard with the Community Assist Award for August.

Despite his busy summer working his way back from knee and shoulder surgery, Wade hosted seven community outreach initiatives, five of which were part of “A Week of Wade's World in South Florida,” during the month of August.

“I just think I’m a person who has an opportunity to let his voice be heard and help people,” said Wade. “Right now, people want to listen to what I have to say. Why not use it to make a difference, especially with kids.”"

Hopefully young players in high schools and prep programs across the nation will continue to look up to D-Wade not just as an athlete but for his selflessness off the court.
