Deveraux Hubbard II died on December 16, 2013 from a pulmonary embolism caused by a blood clot. He was a 19 year old sophomore at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL and an Eagle Scout of Boy Scout Troop 219. The goal of the Deveraux Hubbard II Foundation is to provide education and public awareness about the risks of blood clots and clotting disorders.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein located deep inside your body.
The Deveraux Hubbard II Foundation is partnering with the Bleeding & Clotting Disorders Institute to host the annual Run, Walk, Trot to Stop Blood Clots, a 5K Run/1K Walk to raise awareness about blood clots and clotting disorders. This educational event is held every summer, encouraging people to spend less time sitting and more time moving to decrease the risk of blood clots.
On August 8th, post your 5K virtual activity (running, walking, trotting, HIIT, etc.) on social media using the hashtag
