Dressed to the nines, 19-yr-previous Tori Tomko was considered one of hundreds of particular-wants friends who attended the Tim Tebow Basis’s third annual Night time to Shine promenade in Jacksonville in February.
Their night began on the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, the place that they had their hair and make-up professionally completed, then walked down a pink carpet to the Veterans Memorial Area for their very own promenade.
Tebow himself made an look: “Each single one among you have been topped kings and queens as a result of that’s how God appears at you each single day of your life,” he stated. The inspiration sponsored — and church buildings hosted — 375 simultaneous proms in 50 states and eleven nations on six continents.
Worldwide, about seventy five,000 friends ages 14 and older attended, supported by one hundred fifty,000 volunteers, together with “buddy” escorts for every visitor. On Thursday, Dec. 7, the inspiration publicly launched a video following Tori, who has Down syndrome, all through the night.
