Reading with the Pros

“Reading With The Pros” is an hour of children’s reading by Wade and his celebrity friends who are also committed to encouraging childhood literacy and education. In 2012 and 2013, RWTP has visited numerous libraries and elementary schools in both Dallas and Houston to encourage thousands of children to develop a love for books.

Volunteers have included the following: Chris Myers, Duane Brown, Matt Schaub, Antoine Caldwell, Arian Foster, Ben Tate, Shawn Cody, Brandon Brooks, Antonio Smith, David Hunter, Derek Newton, Cody White, Owen Daniels, Ryan Harris, TJ Yates, Earl Mitchell, Ben Jones and Andrew Gardner (all of the Houston Texans), Herb Taylor (NFL), Torri Williams (NFL), Lawrence Vickers (NFL), Marcus Sloan (basketball), Stacey Smith (USA Track & Field), DJ Kayotik (97.9 The Beat Radio Personality) and more!
