The Tim Tebow Foundation last night put on an unbelievable “Night to Shine” for people with special needs.

The organization called the event “an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love.” 

Together, more than 70,000 volunteers came together to host its honorees at churches all around the world, the group said. More than 32,000 "Kings and Queens" were crowned.

Tebow started the event with just under 50 participating churches last year, he said on Good Morning America.

Now, more than 200 churches volunteer to take part, he said.


The star quarterback shared his motivation behind the amazing feel-good event.

“My inspiration was when I was 15 years old, and I was at a school in a remote village in the Philippines,” he recounted.  “And there was a boy who was shunned out of the event, because his feet were on backwards.”

“What we want to do is fight for the people who can’t fight for themselves. That’s what it’s all about,” Tebow explained.

“It is about celebrating them, it is about loving them and letting them know that their lives matter and that they are special, and giving them the time of their life.”
