November 7, 2023, Fort Wayne, Ind.—Priority Life Care has announced Heisman Trophy winner, college football national champion, bestselling author, and motivational speaker Tim Tebow as the keynote speaker for its 2024 Symposium, taking place January 9-11 in Jupiter Beach, FL.
Tebow will bring his message of faith, hope, and love to the Symposium, which is Priority Life Care’s annual event to recognize its outstanding team of employees and celebrate the company’s continued growth and success over the previous year. As it does each year, Priority Life Care will highlight a select group of honorees from among its more than 60 communities nationwide, including its Associates of the Year and Executive Directors of the Year.
The Symposium reflects Priority Life Care’s unique and innovative focus on recognizing employees from all levels and aspects of the organization, recognizing them for going above and beyond in ensuring all aspects of their respective communities combined to create a safe, welcoming, and nurturing environment for residents and fellow staff members.
“We are pleased to have Tim join us at our 2024 Symposium,” stated Sevy Petras, CEO and co-founder of Priority Life Care. “Tim’s commitment to bringing hope and brighter days to those in need complements the dedication our team displays daily for our residents and everyone we assist. His message and ethos align wonderfully with the values that drive our team.”
Serving others and giving back was instilled in Tebow from birth. The son of missionaries and born in the Philippines, he rose to fame as the quarterback for the University of Florida, where he led the Gators to two national titles and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy in 2007. He was a first-round pick in the NFL and played for three years in the league.
Even during college, Tebow devoted himself to charity, raising money for pediatric cancer patients and disadvantaged children. In 2011, he founded the Tim Tebow Foundation, which serves some of the world’s most vulnerable people and has worked in more than 80 countries around the world. The Tim Tebow Foundation focuses its work on four main areas: anti-human trafficking and child exploitation; orphan care and prevention; profound medical needs; and special needs ministry.
