Welcome to Derek Hubbard's Personal Page

Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.  In the past few years many of you know I formed a UW team with family, co-workers and friends.   This year I my family is joining friends and the president of the local JDRF chapter on the Sheahan team called Sport N A Cure.

My daughter Sarah will cheer us on at the start with the Madison Memorial High School Pom Pon team.

Emily, my 16 year old with Type I will express her indepenence and walk with friends or join us.

We will be starting and ending at the Duck Pond at Warner Park.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.  My daughter Emily has been doing a great job dealing with and managing her diabetes since her diagnosis three years ago.

There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.  The artifical pancreas project needs continued support.  Pumps and continuous monitors are constantly improving to make Emily life better, but we need a cure.

We can make a difference.  This is why I joined the local chapter board of directors 2 years ago.  Won't you please give to JDRF (or join us at the walk) ? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
