Tebow Surprised a Special Needs Fan With a Prom Dance on ‘The Tonight Show’


Last night, Tim Tebow was a guest on The Tonight Show to talk about his charity, A Night to Shine.

As explained on The Tim Tebow Foundation website, “Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older.”

It’s a really cool event and a great cause.

On the show last night, one young fan named Judy, who recently attended A Night to Shine, was in the audience. She’d actually invited Tebow to the event as a date, but since he couldn’t attend the recent New York event, he made it up to her by dancing with her on TV.

Grab some tissues everyone.

Earlier in the interview, he also explained to Jimmy Fallon why a person’s identity shouldn’t be found in superficial pursuits or the opinions of others. He said that he wants young fans to know, “You are loved by the God of this universe. You are special. You are important. And you matter.”
