- fun faith fact! Wade chose the number 3 to represent the Holy Trinity.
Dwayne Wade was born in Chicago, Illinois. His parents divorced and he lived with his dad and stepmom. His mom was in and out of prison due to a drug addiction. She later found God and became a minister. Wade cites one of his older sisters Tagil as the person who is responsible for his upbringing as a child.
Wade is a devout Christian and chose the number 3 because it represents the Holy Trinity. He tithes 10% of his salary to a church in Chicago. Wade is known for his involvement in several charities. He founded The Wade’s World Foundation which provides community support to local organizations. He is also an advocate for St. Jude Children’s Research. Photo courtesy of Keith Allison.
