On April 3, 2001, Chad was involved in a serious accident, leaving him a quadriplegic. But Chad’s dreams were not paralyzed that day; as you can see below, he’s kept himself busy:
The Wall Street Journal calls Chad Hymas one of the 10 most inspirational people in the world!
Last year, Chad spoke at 220 different events, traveling just over 300,000 miles and speaking on five continents and in four countries.
Chad has shared his personal message and entertained many audiences from organizations such as Wells Fargo, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Ford, IHC, Coca-Cola, and the Utah Jazz.
He has raced in marathons and, in the summer of 2003, set a world record by wheeling his chair from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas (513 miles).
Chad participates in other wheelchair athletic competitions, including basketball, rugby, and officiating basketball (a dream come true).
He spends many hours with other injured individuals in therapy, encouraging them to overcome their challenges, focus on dreams and make them a reality, and love life for all that it has to offer. To achieve the unachievable and to reach for the unreachable.
Chad’s greatest accomplishment is that he remains a devoted husband to his loving wife, Shondell, and a proud father to their three children, Christian, Kyler, and Gracee!
