WATCH: Tim Tebow Hosting “Night to Shine” Proms for Special Needs Kids Worldwide
90,000 people with special needs will attend on February 9th.
Tim Tebow is treating 90,000 special needs kids to an unforgettable prom night experience with his annual Night to Shine. Volunteers with the Tim Tebow Foundation work with 540 churches across the globe to provide a prom night complete with limousines, music and Christian values. This year's event is scheduled for Feb. 9.
"To think that 90,000 people with special needs will be cheered for, celebrated and loved on one night around the world is just amazing," Tebow, 30, said in a release. "When Night to Shine started just four years ago, we could never have imagined that it would become the worldwide movement that it is today."
Tebow, who won two national championships during his days as Florida's quarterback, usually makes a surprise appearance at one of the proms.
The kids are treated to a red carpet entrance, limousine services, and a lot of food.
"Each and every time I see a person with special needs walking the red carpet, being cheered for, loved on, and accepted for who God created them to be, I picture Sherwin," Tebow said, referring to the disabled boy he met while on a mission trip to the Philippines who inspired him to start the foundation. "And I'm reminded of why we at TTF do all we do."
