Tim Tebow Opens Tenth Playroom At Children’s Hospital – Wants To Allow Young Patients To ‘Just Be Kids Again’
Star athlete Tim Tebow just went above and beyond once again to help children in some hospitals “just be kids again.”
The Tim Tebow Foundation just opened its 10th “Timmy’s Playroom” at AdventHealth Daytona Beach, a children’s hospital in Florida, giving kids the chance to play and escape their medical conditions for a few minutes.
“Hopefully it can bring a brighter day for so many in their darkest hour of need,” Tebow said. “That is our goal, to encourage and uplift people, especially when they’re going through such a tough time…”
The playroom is equipped with a football field floor, specialized lockers for seating, tables for arts and crafts, flat-screen televisions, video games, toys, and interactive games such as digital air hockey. Like all of Tebow’s other playrooms, this one includes the his favorite Bible verse, Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
Tim Tebow Foundation President Steve Biondo explained that their mission is to bring faith, hope and love to young patients and their families by “creating a space where children can heal in a very unique way.”
“We are honored and incredibly proud to bring a Timmy’s Playroom with the Tim Tebow Foundation to the Daytona Beach community,” said AdventHealth Daytona Beach CEO Ed Noseworthy. “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.”
Tebow has already opened nine other playrooms in children’s hospitals in Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, Texas, and the Philippines. Find out more about the star’s charitable work in the video below.
