Construction began in early 2012 on CURE International’s 12th surgical teaching hospital, under construction in the Philippines on the
island of Mindanao. The hospital will provide life-changing surgery to hundreds of children with curable disabilities each year. The Tebow CURE Hospital will also contain the first international Timmy’s Playroom and a spiritual ministry center. They have raised 84% of their $700,000 funding goal from 388 givers.

Quarterback Tim Tebow has become the miracle man in fourth-quarter comebacks for the Denver Broncos this season. But off the
field, his foundation is partnering with CURE International to bring God’s healing miracles into the lives of young people in the Philippines.
The Tim Tebow Foundation and CURE will build a 30-bed surgical facility for children focusing primarily on orthopedics on the island of Mindanao– an area that holds a particular interest for the Heisman trophy winner.
“I was born in the Philippines and my parents have been missionaries to that area since 1985,” Tebow says. “The Philippines have always had a special place in my heart. I’m excited to be a part of this hospital that will bring healing to thousands of children who would not otherwise have access to care.”

With less than a minute to go, Denver quarterback Tim Tebow stunned N.Y. Jets fans with a 20-yard touchdown run Thursday night, after he led his team on a 95-yard drive for a 17-13 come-from-behind win. After the game he dropped to his knees in prayer, then quickly praised God in post-game interviews.
“First and foremost I have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and thank my teammates, because these guys believed in me and stuck with me for all 60 minutes,” he said.
Tebow has evoked strong emotions from critics and fans — ranging from adulation to disdain – but it doesn’t seem to faze him. Some criticize his throwing motion, some his reliance on an unorthodox option offense. Some of the attacks may be a thinly-veiled response to his bold proclamations of faith.
