From friends of Bob Veillette who is a former managing editor of the Waterbury Republican-American; please consider participating or sponsoring…
Bob, who served as a reporter and editor for the Rep-Am for more than four decades, is “locked in” — almost completely paralyzed by a stroke he suffered in April 2006. (His situation is similar to that of the editor depicted in the book and film, “The Diving Bell and The Butterfly.”)
Bob made news earlier this year by participating in a brain research project that was detailed in the journal Nature and the Republican-American in May. You can find links to the stories we published, as well as additional information about Bob, on his website at www.bobveillette.com.
The road race and walk are now in their seventh year. Also, for the third straight year, running legend Bill Rodgers will attend. He greets the runners, signs autographs, runs in our race and then helps hand out the trophies and prizes.
The Bob5K will be held once again on Sunday, Sept. 9, based in Library Park in downtown Waterbury (across from the Superior Courthouse). The event, which is run by newspaper staff and Bob’s family and friends, has raised more than $105,000 in its first six years. It is the largest annual fundraiser for the Veillette family, who use the money to defray medical costs and improve Bob’s quality of life.
You can find more about the race on our website, www.bob5k.com. Those who want to run can register online with Active.com via a link available on the race website.
We at The Laurel are fans of WTNH meteorologist Erica Grow and are disappointed to see in Java that she’s leaving for Washington D.C.:
“My hours were cut back to part-time at WTNH and the new job is a full-time one,” explained Grow who will do weekend evening weather and reporting during the week at her new job. “While I had planned to stay in Connecticut longer, Washington D.C. will be a return to the big, big market. ”
