On the 29th of April 1994, Chad went out to play in his football league, it would be his last game. He collapsed and died suddenly of Sudden Cardiac Arrest with no history of heart disease.  He was a great guy who loved all people and cared about their dreams. In his 26 years, he never drank an alcohol beverage, smoked a cigarette or did drugs. It was just his own personal code, which he forced on no one.  He always did the driving when he and his friends went out to the clubs dancing- something he loved to do almost as much as playing sports, and you always had to wear a seatbelt when you drove with Chad.  In his name, “The Chad Foundation For Athletes and Artists” was formed, a nonprofit, charitable organization whose mission is to inspire youth to live as Chad did - vibrantly and with generosity of spirit, without substance abuse and with love for all people of all ages and heritages. - "Healthy body/mind/spirit."  Please safeguard your Life and the Lives of others by joining his new program, the “Life is A Gift - Chad Safe Driver Campaign.”

In their honour, their memories and spirits will help us to value Life and drive safely, without distraction or substance abuse.
