Tim Tebow hosted his annual Tim Tebow Celebrity Golf Classic earlier this month in St. Augustine, Florida and it was a huge success. Big names such as football coach Urban Meyer, MLB’s Chipper Jones, NFL Hall of Famer Marcus Allen, PGA Tour winners Zach Johnson and Billy Horschel, and the musical group The Band Perry came to the event that raises money to benefit the Tim Tebow Foundation, which goes towards funding the Tebow Cure Hospital in the Philippines and Night to Shine, which gives teenagers with special needs a nice prom night. In addition to that, the funds raised went towards the W15H program that gives children with fatal sicknesses a chance to have one of their dreams come true. This year, they were able to put together over $5.5 million dollars, and this just proves that Tebow has more on his mind than his uncertain football career and is striving to make a difference.
The Florida native is a son of two missionaries and as a result he was born overseas in the Philippines. Tebow was homeschooled for many years, but then ended up attending a local high school where he was able to play as the school’s football quarterback. He ended up receiving an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida where he quickly became a star player under the head coach, Urban Meyer. and graduated from the institution in 2009. The quarterback then entered the 2010 NFL Football Draft and was selected in the first round as the 25th overall pick by the Denver Broncos, with whom he played with for two seasons before being traded to the New York Jets. He did a brief time with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, but is currently on the market to sign a new contract.
Tebow is making the world a better place through his achievements in raising money for good causes, and this year’s Tim Tebow Celebrity Golf Classic from early March was a huge success.
