“I have a story that I would like to share with you all. I know you will appreciate it and hold it dear in your heart, as I have.
Last Monday, I picked up CJ and drove to Planet Fitness. I had not noticed, however, that CJ did not have his sneakers until we were inside at the front desk. I put my head in my hands and said, ‘Now what am I going to do?’ I had just driven from Burrillville to Woonsocket so we could work out. The manager made some suggestions and we went on our way to try a light workout.
After a couple of minutes, a staff member came over and asked me CJ’s shoe size. I knew if they checked lost and found they would not find his size because he has small feet for a man, so we went about our workout. A couple of minutes later, Daniel Cote, the Club Manager, came walking over with a brand-new pair of sneakers that he had run out and bought a couple of stores down at Olympia Sports.
I am attaching the video of Dan putting the sneakers on CJ. I cannot begin to tell you how in awe of this man I am.

You see, what he did not know was, I was having one of those days… I had somehow left the house without my pocketbook when I went to pick up CJ and I did not realize it until I stopped for gas and had no money. I could not have bought CJ a pair of sneakers and I didn’t have enough gas to go back to Burrillville for CJ’s sneakers and then back to Woonsocket.
People like Dan restore my faith in mankind, and he is the reason I will drive a little farther to the Planet Fitness on Diamond Hill Road. CJ and I are so appreciative of every smile and fist pump and we are his biggest fans. This world is a better place with Dan in it and I wanted you to know…”
