[fblike]We just found out about Naugatuck Firefighter Tim Andrew who will be running the Empire State Building Stair Race for a disabled Connecticut veteran. The man, Bob Veillette, suffered a stroke that has paralyzed him from the nose down. The race on February 1st involves running up 86 flights of stairs, a total of 1,576 steps, to get to the finish line.
It’s firefighters like Tim giving back to the community that truly demonstrates what it means to work in public service. Kudos!
If you’d like to sponsor Tim’s run to help Bob and his medical expenses, you can visit www.bobveillette.com for more information.
