Dwyane Wade has already made a significant impact in first season with the Chicago Bulls — he’s the team’s second leading scorer behind Jimmy Butler — but his off-court legacy continues to reverberate far from the shores of Lake Michigan.

During his thirteen seasons with the Miami Heat, Wade partnered with the Make-A-Wish Southern Florida to grant the wishes of 36 children. The impact that these meetings had on the children was life-changing.
Watch as five of these kids – Wildine, Max, Nataly, Lander and Damian – fondly remember their time with Wade and thank the NBA star for making their dream come true.

Wade’s 2008 meeting with Noa Ornellas was chronicled on ESPN’s My Wish.
Noa survived a liver transplant and massive infection as an infant to grow into a capable hoopster. During his visit with Wade, he bested his idol in a game of one-on-one and then scored some serious swag back at Wade’s house.
