Run for fallen Surrey officer Saturday

A memorial run for Adrian Oliver will be held at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby at 11 a.m

Const. Adrian Oliver

Members of the RCMP are inviting the public to join them Saturday, Nov. 14 at 11 a.m. at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby for the annual Adrian Oliver Memorial Run.

This year’s event will feature a five- or 10-km run, followed by a barbecue, silent auction and 50/50 draw.

In November 2012, Surrey RCMP Const. Adrian Oliver was involved in a motor vehicle collision that took his life. Members of the Oliver family, including his father – who is also a member of the RCMP – travelled across country to be with their friends and family to remember their son, brother, grandson and friend. While in Vancouver, the Oliver family were welcomed by Honour House.

Honour House, located in New Westminster, is a home away from home and a place for recovery for Emergency Services personnel, Canadian Forces members, veterans and their families, where they can stay free of charge while in the Vancouver area to receive medical treatment.

In November 2013, Honour House, in partnership with the Burnaby RCMP and Oliver’s family and friends, launched the first annual Adrian Oliver Memorial Run to recognize not only Oliver, but all heroes who give their lives while serving their communities and country.

“Those who knew Adrian, knew he loved being a Mountie, not only for the excitement, but because he wanted to give back and make a difference,” said Joe Oliver, Adrian’s father.

“I can think of no better way for Adrian’s legacy to live on than to support Honour House through his Memorial Run.”
