Letter: Thanks from the Willey family for the 5K

We would like to say a heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in the Willey Coyote 5K Run at Glenwood Springs Middle School this past Sunday. It was humbling to feel the love and support that all of you brought to Bob and our family. And what a gorgeous day! The route down Donegan to the fish hatchery is one of Bob’s all-time favorites and it gave him such joy to see all of you out there running and walking for him. It was also fun to see the great costumes, hear the wonderful music and cheer on the enthusiastic participants.

Thank you to every single one of the sponsors and volunteers — especially race directors, Abbey Walters and Mike Schneider, Heritage Park Care Center, Alpine Bank, and Sandy DeCrow and GSMS. There were clearly countless hours and thought contributed by all involved in organizing and executing the race. The list of the businesses and individuals who donated prizes, food, coffee, time and support is also overwhelming.

Of course, the race would not have been the successful and incredible event that it was had it not been for every friend, family member, former student, actor, co-worker, and community member who showed up. Please know that we appreciate every ounce of the support you have given us as we move forward on this road of recovery for Bob. This community never ceases to amaze us. We all live in such a wonderful place.

Bob and Michele Willey and family

Glenwood Springs
