The annual Night to Shine prom, hosted by the Tim Tebow Foundation, will take place at hundreds of locations around the world tonight (Feb. 9).

“Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. On one night, February 9, 2018, more than 540 churches from around the world will come together to host Night to Shine for approximately 90,000 honored guests through the support of 175,000 volunteers!” according to the Tim Tebow Foundation website.

Christian athlete Tim Tebow will himself attend several of the Night to Shine prom’s. The committed Christian who is currently pursuing a baseball career with a New York Mets’ minor league team, said Night to Shine is “one of the best nights of my life.”

Tebow, whose mother was encouraged to abort him due to complications with her pregnancy, has a particular love for special needs children.

His Tim Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines also serves children with special needs by providing them with necessary medical care.

“It’s my favorite night of the year and we get to change so many lives,” Tebow said, as reported by “Honestly, it’s not just the night of their life where they get to dance, and they get to have fun. They get to ride in limos, they get to walk down red carpets.

It’s so much more than life, because maybe for the first time, they realize that they’re worth it,” he continued. “They realize that they’re special. They realize that they’re loved. There’s not much more important than that.”
