If someone had asked Chad Hymas at the age of 27 how he felt about life, he would have answered: “I am on top of my world, living all of my dreams.” Chad Hymas had spent six years building businesses that were reaching new heights; he enjoyed landscape construction, real estate investing, and had recently finished creating an elk preserve embracing 5,100 acres. Chad Hymas’ life included a passion for athletics, playing league basketball and baseball, and he had just started officiating basketball games. He was married to his high-school sweetheart, had two children, and everything in his life seemed to fall into place.
However, on April 3, 2001, at the age of 27, Chad was involved in a serious accident, which left him paralyzed from the chest down, with limited use of his arms. Having broken three of the seven vertebrae in his neck, Chad was pronounced a quadriplegic. Doctors said that he would never walk, and that without the complete use of his arms, Chad would need an electric wheelchair. Wondering where all of his dreams went, Chad decided that he had the power to control his own future. “Dreams are only paralyzed when our attitude and belief allows them to be!”
Since that fateful day, Chad has demonstrated his power to control his own future in many ways. He started Chad Hymas Communications, Inc., a professional speaking company, designed to motivate businesses and corporations to “use their wings and reach seemingly impossible heights.” Chad is a wheelchair athlete, no longer in an electric wheelchair, and participates in wheelchair athletic competitions including basketball, rugby, wheelchair racing and he is also officiating basketball games (a dream come true). Chad has become a wheelchair marathon racer, and in the summer of 2003 set a world record by wheeling his chair from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas, a span of 513 miles.
In March of 2004, the Tooele County Chamber of Commerce recognized Chad Hymas as Tooele County Citizen of the Year. In their newsletter, they stated: “Chad was injured in an accident and left a quadriplegic. He is a real hero who hasn’t let this get him down but instead turned it into a positive thing by talking to children and adults about making good choices and never letting go of your dreams.”
