Tim Tebow Puts on Annual Night To Shine Event For Special Needs Teens (VIDEO)
At this point, if you have an issue with Tim Tebow as a person, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. Not him. You may not respect what he did on the football field or currently on the baseball field, but you have to respect some of the work he does off the field.
The former NFL player and current minor league baseball player for the New York Mets recently put on his annual Night to Shine event, which provides a prom-like experience for teens with special needs from around the world.
On the bus ride over to #NightToShine my date said Julio Jones was his favorite player. Seconds later, Jalen Hurts lined the red carpet and cheered for him by name. My date turned to me and said “I got a new favorite player!” pic.twitter.com/Aeq8EuPLlt

Night to Shine is hosted at over 500 churches around the world, honoring over 90,000 guests.
“It’s my favorite night of the year and we get to change so many lives,” Tebow said in a video promoting the event. “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.”
