(KTVI)-There’s an incredible story out of Millstadt, Illinois that much of the St. Louis area has missed. The courageous young man at the center of it all has a connection to one of America’s most celebrated athletes along with a passion to give back.

Adam Hubbs, 17, suffers from a rare immunodeficiency disorder known as MonoMac, an immunodeficiency disease that is characterized by a lack of monocytes, a type of white blood cell.

Back in June, Hubbs got to meet his football idol,  NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Hubbs' want to give back. They are hosting a trivia night and auction on Sept. 15th. The proceeds go the the Tim Tebow Foundation. The event is sold out, but if you would like to donate an auction item or just make a donation to the event you can email Mark Hubbs at
