Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union donated $200,000 to a student-run gun control rally that will take place in Washington D.C.

The Miami Heat star tweeted that he and Union donated money for students in Chicago to attend the “March for Our Lives” rally later this month.

He also called for other NBA players to donate and stand with the teenagers calling for gun control.

Last week, Wade surprised the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and spoke about how they inspired him.

The high school is the location of one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history where a gunman killed 17 people on Feb. 14.

Wade has been an outspoken critic about gun violence plaguing communities.

The “March for Our Lives” rally takes place on March 24.
