One Man, One Mission and a Whole Lot of Trash

Chad Pregracke is a modern day leader and proof that one person can make a difference. What started as one man's crusade at age 23 to clean up the Mississippi River, has evolved into a cultural movement that had resulted in over 8 million pounds of garbage being cleaned out of America's rivers. The vision has inspired more than 87,000 people to volunteer their time and resources. In 2013, CNN named Chad the 2013 CNN Hero of the Year. When he's not speaking, Chad spends most of his time traveling throughout America's rivers on their floating headquarters/classroom barge that he appropriately named, Teamwork. 

With enthusiasm and humor, Chad inspires audiences to create a vision that will inspire others. His customized presentations touch on the importance of goal setting, teamwork, problem solving, giving back all while having fun.

Beats By Chad
All of us here at GDA know Chad is a funny guy and that he likes to have a good time. A few weeks ago we received a 'GDA rap' created by Chad and one of his friends. It is too good not to share. We hope you enjoy!
