Thousands of people around the world honored young adults and teens with special needs and disabilities for the 10th annual “Night to Shine.”

The event was created by the Tim Tebow Foundation in 2015 to share the love of God in a practical way.

“We believe in Jesus as our greatest example, our how and the answer. He loved us enough to give everything so that we could be reconciled with Him, and as Jesus accomplished His mission to save us from sin and separation from God, He also saved us for the mission of spreading the gospel and loving people,” Tim Tebow explained on X.

“By God’s grace, we have seen Night to Shine act as a catalyst, we’ve seen thousands of people serve with us and help turn Night to Shine into a worldwide movement to share the message that every person with special needs inherently deserves to be celebrated, that they’re loved and that their true identity is a child of God,” Tebow shared.

This year’s event was hosted Feb. 9, by 725 churches across 56 countries including several hundred churches in the U.S.

Tebow and his wife, Demi, were able to surprise volunteers and guests at seven different Night to Shine locations including events in Guatemala, Belize, Colombia, Brazil and three different churches in Ohio.

“It’s good for the families to see their kids with a smile on their face, because they know the harsh reality of not every day is sunshine and rainbows or a special night,” Kelly Harmody, a member at Church of the Resurrection in Solon, Ohio, told Fox 8.

Tebow also made an appearance at Christ’s Church in Mason, Ohio, writing on X, “So grateful for each and every church who has been with us since the beginning, and for all those incredible churches who are part now—700+ this year!”

The mission of Night to Shine is “to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.”
