Sixteen-year-old Thomas Raleigh is looking forward to traveling with his family to south Florida for the New York Jets versus the Miami Dolphins game this Sunday. For several years, Thomas has followed Tim Tebow’s football career and has dreamed about meeting Jets quarterback Tim Tebow. Thomas said, “I look forward to meeting Tim Tebow because he is passionate about his faith, hard working and a great football player.”
Thomas has been battling a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines known as Crohn’s disease. His faith and determination has helped him continue to find joy and happiness in soccer, video games and music.
Through the Tim Tebow Foundation’s W15H (Wish 15) program, in partnership with Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Thomas will travel to Sun Life Stadium in Miami to spend time with Tebow during pre-game warm-ups and immediately following the game.
Thomas will return to Naples, Florida with a W15H gift package that includes exclusive W15H luggage, a Nike duffle bag, gift cards for both Nike and Jockey, Tim Tebow’s book, Through My Eyes, a Florida Gators 2008 National Championship book, a personalized Bible and much more. The W15H experience will provide Thomas with memories that he will carry for a lifetime as he continues to battle his life-threatening illness.
