About Chad Pregracke
Chad Pregracke is the internationally named 2013 CNN Hero of the Year, and founder and president of Living Lands & Waters, a nonprofit river cleanup organization. Best known for starting out as a young man in East Moline, Illinois, and wanting a cleaner waterway, Pregracke has become the champion for the Mississippi River. Growing up on its banks, he worked as a commercial shell diver during his early years, experiencing the river from the bottom up. He saw its beauty and was frustrated by the neglect. At the age of 17, he decided to clean it up. Twenty-two years later, Pregracke and his Living Lands & Waters crew have organized and led over 1,000 community cleanups on 23 rivers in 20 states and removed over 10 million pounds of garbage. Illinois State University students are part of these cleanup efforts each March through Alternative Spring Breaks.

During his presentation, Pregracke will take the audience out on one of the world’s greatest rivers–a journey filled with endless challenges and gripping adventures. His delivery is motivating, captivating, genuine, and refreshingly spontaneous. His story will show you that one person can truly make a difference!
