Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has led his team to a series of fourth-quarter comebacks this season, but he is also making an impact off the field: His foundation is partnering with CURE International to build a children's hospital in the Philippines, ASSIST News Service reports. The 30-bed surgical facility in Davao City will focus primarily on orthopedics on the island of Mindanao, an area that holds a particular interest for Tebow -- his parents were missionaries to that area and he was born in the Philippines. "The Philippines have always had a special place in my heart," he said. "I'm excited to be a part of this hospital that will bring healing to thousands of children who would not otherwise have access to care." Groundbreaking for the hospital is set for January 2012, and it is expected to open in 2013.
