Almost a year ago, Tim received a letter from 10-year-old Levi that immediately captured the hearts of the TTF team and we knew then God was calling us to come alongside this sweet boy!
“I remember you said to be kind to everyone because you never know what they might be going through…I’ve been going through rough times. You’re the person I feel good to talk about my surgeries with because you’re the best football player I know. I wanted to talk to you about this because you love God and depend on Him,”Levi wrote in his letter.
Shortly after receiving Levi’s letter, we reached out to his mom… We just knew God was calling us to develop a relationship with Levi and to set up a W15H for him to talk more with Tim.
“It really means a lot that you guys thought about me after what I wrote to Tim Tebow and what I have been through. So thank you so much! I want to meet Tim Tebow because he is the person that inspired me to love God and trust Him. And I love him. He is a great role model.”- Levi
This weekend, we are thrilled to officially meet Levi for his W15H experience!
Levi and his family are die-hard Florida Gator fans, so we were thrilled to be able to welcome them to Jacksonville for the annual Georgia vs. Florida football game! Levi’s W15H began on Friday in Jacksonville and stopped by the Tim Tebow Foundation offices for a VIP tour, scavenger hunt and games with the staff! It was such a blessing that the TTF team was able to be a part of the W15H!
Levi and his family then enjoyed a gourmet private dinner with Tim Tebow Friday night at the Capital Grille. Levi was able to spend real one-on-one time with Tim, as he talked about the struggles he has faced so courageously. Tim gave Levi fun gifts, shared encouragement and prayed with the family. It was a great night!
On Saturday, Levi and his family hopped in the limo behind a police escort as they headed to SEC Nation for the big game! Behind-the-scenes of SEC Nation, Levi was treated as a VIP and, as a really passionate sports fan, had a truly special experience!
Following SEC Nation, the family headed to the big game!
“Although we spend every Saturday during game season with family and friends watching the Gators, our kids have not been to a game. This experience is going to have such an impact on both our kids. We are so thankful that you are providing an experience for our son that will be so positive and something he will never forget!” – Levi’s mom
We had such an amazing weekend with Levi and his family and are so inspired! Levi's love for Jesus, even on the hardest days is such a testimony to his faith. Please join us in praying for Levi as he continues the fight!
