He participates in wheelchair athletic competitions including basketball, rugby, wheelchair racing, and snow skiing, and officiating basketball that is a dream come true.
Mr. Hymas spends many hours with other injured individuals in therapy, encouraging them to overcome their challenges, focus on dreams and make them a reality, and to love life for all that it has to offer. To achieve the unachievable and to reach for the unreachable.
Chad Hymas is the author of the regionally best-selling book Soaring to New Heights.
