CHICAGO – Dwyane Wade’s return home was more than just a basketball decision.

Wade has stated time again that he came back to Chicago to give back to the community that raised him.

In his latest attempt to help kids who grew up in a similar situation find a way to block out negative influences, Wade demonstrates the power of basketball through a short film called “Sounds of Hope.”

Gatorade teamed up with Wade to make the spot and also made a donation to the Willie Mae Morris center – a hub of his city-focused initiatives named after his grandmother.
