Tim Tebow Invites Thousands With Special Needs To Go To Prom

Tim Tebow has lived his life with his faith in the forefront of everything he does.  No matter the challenges and blessings that life has thrown at him, Tebow has always tried to put God and his community first.

Though he is not playing football, Tebow has quarterbacked his charity’s efforts to impact the lives of those with special needs.  According to People, the Tim Tebow Foundation is hosting prom events around the country for people with special needs. 

Last year, the prom events were held in 26 states and also Uganda and Kenya.  Over 7,000 special needs youth and 15,000 volunteers participated in the “Night to Shine” proms.  “As a foundation, we are so passionate about people with special needs,” Tebow said, “and this event is a great time to tell them how much they are loved by God and by all of us.”

This year, Tebow and his foundation have taken the event to a whole new level.  The 200 different proms are being held in 48 different states.  Vermont and Delaware are the only two states not currently hosting an event.

“Every time I think about it, I’m so humbled and amazed by the way God has continued to grow Night to Shine,” Tebow said.  “I can’t wait for February 12th, it’s my favorite night of the year.”

The proms are mostly held in churches and are open to all people with special needs, no matter what faith they follow.  The prom-goers arrive on a red carpet and get their photos taken.  Once inside they receive a corsage or boutonniere and can visit hair and make-up stations if they desire.  As for the prom, there is lots of karaoke and dancing.

“We hope that the movement of Night to Shine not only transforms the way we think about Valentine’s Day, but also launches or enhances ongoing special needs ministries within churches around the world and provides a place where our honored guests can be celebrated and loved throughout the year,” Tim Tebow Foundation executive director Erik Dellenback said.
