Athlete Tim Tebow and his wife, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, kicked off the sixth annual Night to Shine for people with special needs this week.

It took about 215,000 volunteers to plan the celebrations that were hosted by more than 720 churches in the United States and in over 30 countries, according to Fox News.

“We have decided to go out of our way to make the biggest, the most special night of the year for people with special needs because they’re worth it and they’re special,” Tebow said.

Friday, he tweeted a video compilation of the events from several different countries:

“I want you to know that tonight is all about you. The red carpet, the balloons, the celebration — it is just for you,” he said in the video.

“It is because we love you. It is because you matter. It is because you are special, and there is a great purpose for your life. For every single one of you, we are naming you the king or the queen of the prom,” Tebow stated.

Friday, the Daytona Beach Fire Department in Florida tweeted photos of its firefighters escorting Night to Shine attendees to their venue:

“The Christian faith is about loving Jesus and loving people, and that is what we are trying to do with this foundation and all of our outreaches,” the Tim Tebow Foundation’s website reads.

The foundation said its mission is to “bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.”
