Chad Pregracke named CNN Hero of the Year

November 20, 2013

He's always been a champion of the environment—and now he's a winner in more ways than one.

On Tuesday, Chad Pregracke, founder of Living Lands & Waters, was named CNN Hero of the Year. The selection was based on online votes.

As CNN Hero of the Year, Chad has garnered an additional $250,000 for Living Lands & Waters, the river cleanup organization he founded. The organization already has received $50,000 through the heroes program.

A special CNN report, "CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute," will air at 7 p.m. CST on Sunday, Dec. 1.
