Popular Christian athlete Tim Tebow said his Night to Shine event in Haiti Thursday night was “life changing.”
“We just left our first Night to Shine here in Haiti,” Tebow said in a video posted to Instagram. “Tonight was life-changing. For me to be able to dance with all of these kids [and] have so much fun cheering them on, and just love them and show the love of God to every single one of them, because He loves us all so much,” he gushed.
The former NFL quarterback-turned-baseball player posted the clip right before boarding a plane to fly back to the United States to attend additional Night to Shine events happening simultaneously on Friday night.
Night to Shine is sponsored by The Tim Tebow Foundation and aims to help people with special needs, ages 14 and up experience prom.
In addition to cities across the U.S., proms will also be held in Peru, New Zealand, Albania, Kenya, and South Africa, among others.
According to the Night to Shine website, the worldwide celebration will be run by volunteers “in more than 375 host churches in 50 states, 11 different countries on six continents and in 28 different denominations.”
