For the sixth consecutive year, Christian sportsman Tim Tebow celebrates “Night to Shine”. It is an event where teenagers with special needs are treated like queens and kings.
According to reports, approximately 110,000 guests were honored in more than 700 churches around the world that made the event.
Tebow, who recently married the Former Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, attended one of the celebrations he held in Florida, according to WCTV.
“It’s my favorite night of the year, having the chance to celebrate humanity and show God’s love to the world, it’s just so special to me,” he said.
The famous athlete thanked all those who collaborated to make a difference in the hearts of so many people.
“Just finished Night to Shine here in Tallahassee and it was unbelievable. Over 1,000 kings and queens were honored here tonight, thousands of volunteers – it was absolutely incredible. Thank you to all the churches and volunteers and prayer warriors that have been a part of this and help make this happen,” Tebow said
“We are so grateful for you. Thank you for being part of this team, movement, and effort to value life and people and believe that we can come together and make a difference…I do believe that we are making a difference,” he added.
