Tim Tebow touches 90,000 lives in one night – ‘a night to remember’


In 2015, Tim Tebow had an idea. He wanted to create a worldwide “prom” for teens with special needs. The event, which he named Night to Shine, would celebrate people with mental and physical disabilities. They would wear tuxedos and dresses, have hair and makeup done by professionals, and walk the red carpet.

The idea proved to be a hit, and that first Night to Shine included 44 simultaneous events held in churches in 26 states and two foreign countries.

The Tim Tebow Foundation has continued to organize Night to Shine every February since, and it has grown in scope each year.

This year’s event, held Friday, hosted an incredible 90,000 people with special needs. An army of 175,000 volunteers helped organized proms at 540 different churches in 16 countries.

Tim Tebow has called Night to Shine his “favorite night of the year,” and when you look at photos and videos from the various locations it’s easy to see why.

Tebow kept himself busy, traveling to Night to Shine events in Peru, Guatemala and Oklahoma City.
