The national baseball player—Tim Tebow is sharing his compassion by giving children in some hospitals spaces to escape the hum-drum of their medical condition and enjoy life.
On Aug. 8, the Tim Tebow Foundation opened its 10th Timmy’s Playroom at AdventHealth Daytona Beach, a children’s hospital in Florida, with the purpose of “bring a brighter day for so many in their darkest hour of need,” Tebow said in a video posted by AdventHealth.
“That is our goal, to encourage and uplift people, especially when they’re going through such a tough time …” the star added.
Timmy’s Playroom, as it is called, includes a football field floor, specialized lockers for seating, tables for arts and crafts, flat-screen televisions, video games, toys, interactive games like digital air hockey and other activities.
Tebow’s favorite Bible verse, Philippians 4:13 was displayed in every playroom: “can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
Tim Tebow Foundation President Steve Biondo notes the foundation’s mission is to bring faith, hope, and love to pediatric patients and their families is summed up by “creating a space where children can heal in a very unique way.”
“We know that to kids, a hospital can be a scary or intimidating place, but with all of the interactive games and activities in this playroom, we hope will be a place filled with laughter and where children can feel better,” AdventHealth Daytona Beach CEO Ed Noseworthy thanked the foundation to bring Timmy’s Playroom to the Daytona Beach community.
It’s as his foundation’s page notes: “The Tim Tebow Foundation exists to bring Faith, Hope, and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.” Tebow and his team are undoubtedly bringing lights of hope to children whose lives are miserable.
