PETE’S SAKE. JEAN: THE FAMILY IS CHERISHING
AND MAKING MEMORIES SINCE PETE
COLLAPSED AT THE GYM A FEW
MONTHS AGO AND WAS DIAGNOSED

DOWN. BUT THE OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT
FROM THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN
AMAZING. JEAN: PETE IS AN ENGINEER AND
THEIR WIFE — AND HIS WIFE KATIE
IS A SCHOOLTEACHER. THEY ARE OPTIMISTIC FOR THEIR
FAMILY.>>WE ARE RAISING TWO YOUNG BOYS
AND MAKING SURE THEY UNDERSTAND
HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BE KIND
TO OTHERS. JEAN: AND THAT IS WHY KATIE MADE
A SPECIAL REQUEST FOR HER 40TH
BIRTHDAY. I SAID I DON’T WANT ANYTHING BUT
I WANT PEOPLE TO PAY IT FORWARD. JEAN: SHE HAD BRACELETS MADE OF
GRAY, THE COLOR FOR BRAIN
CANCER.>>WE HID THEM AROUND TOWN. WITH A LITTLE NOTE THAT SAID —
IF YOU FIND THIS, DO AN ACT OF
KINDNESS. JEAN: THE KINDNESS CAMPAIGN
REALLY BEGAN TO CATCH ON. SOON, THE FAMILY BEGAN TO HEAR
ABOUT RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

FACEBOOK WITH THE #FORPETESSAKE.>>PEOPLE AROUND TOWN THAT WE
HAD NEVER MET PURCHASING LUNCH
FOR OTHER PEOPLE. JEAN: HUNTER AND COLTON LOVE
SEEING WHAT IS BEING DONE IN THE
NAME OF THEIR FATHER.>>I THINK IT IS GREAT TO SEE
PEOPLE SHARE KINDNESS WITH
OTHERS. JEAN: AND THE WHOLE FAMILY HOPES
PEOPLE WILL CONTINUE TO PAY IT
FORWARD FOR PETE’S SAKE.>>JUST REINFORCING THAT PEOPLE
ARE GOOD.
