Does it get any better than Tim Tebow? Over the past few months, he’s decided to take up professional baseball just because he can, managed to save the life of a fan in the outfield, led an entire airplane in prayer after a passenger suffered a medical injury, and the list goes on.
Tebow is well known for being involved in charities through the Tim Tebow Foundation, including Night to Shine events held around the globe the Friday before Valentine’s Day. The event is designed, as Tebow explained to Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on the Tonight Show yesterday, to celebrate those with special needs and give them a great night.
“Kids with special needs are being celebrated, they are being cheered for, and it’s my favorite night of the year,” Tebow told Fallon.
As you can imagine, Tebow can’t be at every single location at once – they are in 11 countries around the world – and he feels disappointed when he can’t meet all the requests he gets from fans. One such fan, Judy, really wanted Tim as her prom date. That didn’t happen, but she got something even better.
“There is actually a special girl here in the audience, who actually went to Night to Shine here in New York,” Tebow explained. “She is so amazing, she is so inspirational. She actually reached out to me and invited me to prom and I was kinda flying all over the world going to a lot of them. But we invited her mom here today, and she is here, and I am here. And so, Judy Adams, I was wondering if maybe I could have a dance?”
The audience erupted into cheers and needless to say, Judy was ecstatic. Tebow told her she “looked beautiful” to which she replied, “Thank you.”
What a beautiful moment!
