Tim Tebow may no longer be in the headlines in the same way that he was as the Florida Gators’ starting quarterback in 2007, but he continues to maintain his reputation for touching those in need. Using his W15H program, an outreach initiative of the Tim Tebow Foundation, he’s making a lasting impact on young people with chronic illnesses.
Last weekend, Tebow granted the wish of Nate Maxwell on the set of The SEC Network’s SEC Nation program in Arkansas. Maxwell, a 15-year old who is battling severe Crohn’s disease has been inspired by Tebow and wanted to meet the college football legend in person.
Despite his circumstances, Maxwell is known for having a positive outlook and a sense of humor. He and his family enjoyed attending the Alabama Razorbacks vs. Arkansas Crimson Tide game in Fayetteville on Saturday.
Each W15H child receives a unique experience and one-on-one time Tim Tebow and some takeaways including a W15H gift package, a copy of Tim’s book Through My Eyes, a personalized Bible and more.
