Tim Tebow has done it again!

With the opening of the Tim Tebow Foundation’s 10th "Timmy's Playroom," the Florida sports legend is giving the young patients at AdventHealth Daytona Beach a chance to escape their medical conditions and "just be kids again."

"Hopefully it can bring a brighter day for so many in their darkest hour of need," Tebow, 31, said in a video posted by AdventHealth on Facebook. "That is our goal, to encourage and uplift people, especially when they're going through such a tough time..."

AdventHealth Daytona Beach’s state-of-the-art playroom features a football field floor, specialized lockers for seating, tables for arts and crafts, flat-screen televisions, video games, toys, interactive games like digital air hockey, and more. In every playroom, the words of Philippians 4:13, Tebow's favorite Bible verse, are prominently displayed: “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

“Both AdventHealth Daytona Beach and the Tim Tebow Foundation are committed to spreading Faith, Hope, and Love in tangible ways to those we serve,” Steve Biondo, Tim Tebow Foundation President, said in a news release. “Our partnership is very well expressed in this 10thTimmy’s Playroom, where precious children going through medical challenges can be loved on physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is a special place of laughter, joy, and hope. We are grateful to serve with the team at AdventHealth in creating a space where children can heal in a very unique way.”

Keep up the good work, Tim!
