The W15H program, an outreach initiative of the Tim Tebow Foundation, fulfills the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses whose wish is to meet Tim Tebow.
Each year, the Tim Tebow Foundation creates official W15H experiences by providing deserving children with travel, accommodations, customized daily activities and dining reservations, gifts and one-on-one time with Tim. W15H has granted more than 60 official W15H experiences at many venues including NFL Games, Award Shows, Disney World, SEC Nation College Game Days and more.
In addition, Tim has connected with hundreds of special children around the country as part of our W15H Brighter Days. W15H Brighter Days consist of phone calls, hospital visits, meet and greets at speaking engagements and more.

Each W15H is customized to meet the child’s needs and includes:
W15H recipients are children who are battling life-threatening illnesses. All referrals sent to the Tim Tebow Foundation are reviewed and verified by the child’s lead physician or by our wish-granting partner, Dreams Come True of Jacksonville.
The expense of each W15H experience varies depending on the location and need of each child; however, the average W15H costs $5,000.
The Tim Tebow Foundation aims to grant up to 20 W15H experiences a year. However, due to a child’s sensitive health condition, a W15H experience can be postponed at the last minute and rescheduled.
The Tim Tebow Foundation pays for all aspects of the W15H experience including travel, lodging, meals, special customized activities and gifts.
The number of family members that participate in each W15H experience varies; however, we aim to host the child and three family members on each W15H.
W15H experiences take place in various places including football games, award shows, Disney World and more.
Wish experiences are exclusively for children who are battling life-threatening illnesses. We receive recommendations though national wish granting organizations such as Make A Wish and Dreams Come True of Jacksonville. Personal recommendations for the W15H program can be sent to W15H@timtebowfoundation.org.
