Pete's Pals are the friends and family of Peter James Herchenbach, who passed away from a brain stem tumor on August 22, 2006. Pete's legacy was his sincere love for others and his brilliant smile, which lasted up to his last days just as he was to start his college. We remember his character, his graciousness, and the amazing positive influence he had on everyone who knew him. We honor his spirit by supporting anyone who, like him, is living each day as best they can despite difficult health circumstances.

The Peter J. Herchenbach Memorial Scholarship Fund is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that helps high school students that are fighting cancer or other life threatening diseases. We offer $5,000 college scholarships that support anyone whose high school experience is being overshadowed by their disease.
