In line with its mission to improve people’s health and wellbeing, the Trace Minerals team donated their time and resources to Matabeleland
OGDEN, Utah, September 15, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Trace Minerals, America’s number one selling trace mineral, liquid magnesium, and performance nutrition brand according to SPINS® and the leading provider of trace mineral-based supplements for over 50 years, today announced the official launch of its “Trace Gives Back” program. Through this initiative, Trace Minerals is taking its commitment to improving people’s health and wellbeing one step further by giving back to communities in need.
To kick off the program, Matt Kilts, co-owner and CEO of Trace Minerals, and Steve Reeves, president of Trace International, traveled to Matabeleland, a region in Zimbabwe, for a service trip. During this two-week period, Kilts and Reeves helped with multiple humanitarian projects. Their primary focus was to provide residents with access to clean water by obtaining a water well drill rig and helping set up access to this new water source. Aligned with Trace Minerals’ mission to remineralize the world, Kilts and Reeves also supplied residents with bottles of ConcenTrace®.
Additionally, the team donated clothing and shoes and assisted at an elementary school, where they:
- Helped install a new playground set and solar roofing
- Initiated a monthly teacher allowance to supplement salaries
- Donated a motorcycle to a teacher in need of transportation
- Began a student endowment fund
“I want to thank our fearless leader, Matt Kilts, for making it possible to give back to the Matabeleland community so generously. An incredible start to our new ‘Trace Gives Back’ program, we were truly humbled by this experience,” said Reeves. “I look forward to participating in additional initiatives as we strive to make a positive impact on people around the world.”
This volunteer trip marks the first of many “Trace Gives Back” initiatives. The team plans to continue setting up water wells, improving access to education and promoting healthy lifestyles and remineralization.

Today, Rivers are Life premiered its latest film highlighting the work of Memphis-based River Hero Chad Pregracke and his organization, Living Lands & Waters. The documentary, titled “Study Aboard,” centers on Chad and his mission to protect the Mississippi River and beyond while empowering students to change the world.
Chad Pregracke grew up in Illinois with the Mississippi River as his backyard. As the son of two educators and river enthusiasts, Chad spent the majority of his childhood on, in and around the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. After years of working on the Mississippi River as a clam diver, commercial fisherman, and barge hand, he became appalled by the amount of garbage in the river and decided that if no one else was going to do something about it, he would. At the age of 23, Pregracke founded Living Lands & Waters, an organization dedicated to keeping rivers clean and safe.
“Study Aboard” tells the story of Living Lands & Waters’ “Alternative Spring Break” trips. Each year, Chad and his crew host college students on their workboats in Memphis, Tennessee. Students from all over the country spend a week in a floating classroom and living quarters on Lake McKeller, collecting trash before it flows into the Mississippi River. The trash is then brought to their barge, where it piles up and creates an impactful visual intended to move locals to realize the magnitude of the problem. Finally, the trash is recycled at a local recycling operation. These “Alternative Spring Breaks” show students firsthand the issues facing our rivers, while inspiring them and local residents to act now to protect them.
“If everybody had a cause, the world would be a better place,” Pregracke tells students. “You can make a difference, and hard work will pay off in the long run. All you need to do is change your world. That’s how the world changes.”
To date, Living Lands & Waters has educated 11,386 college students from all over the country. Beyond “Alternative Spring Breaks,” the organization has worked on 25 rivers in 21 states and has hosted 1,326 community-based cleanups. Spending up to nine months a year living and traveling on the barge, the Living Lands & Waters crew hosts countless river cleanups, watershed conservation initiatives, workshops, tree plantings and other key conservation efforts. They collect 100,000 pounds of trash each year, with a total of 13,000,000 pounds of trash removed to date.
Rivers are Life is proud to amplify Chad’s story and the work his crew and students are doing to protect our rivers. “Study Aboard” premieres today and serves as a reminder that everyone can make a difference and have fun doing it. Watch the film HERE.
