Fundraiser Saturday in memory fallen Surrey RCMP officer

Adrian Oliver Memorial Run benefits Honour House – a place of respite for first responders.

Surrey RCMP Const. Adrian Oliver

Members of the RCMP are inviting the public to join them on  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, situated 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. It’s a place where heroes can stay with their families, free of charge, while visiting the Vancouver area to receive medical care and treatment.

In November 2013, Honour House, in partnership with the Burnaby RCMP and Oliver’s family and friends, launched the first Adrian Oliver Memorial Run. The run would recognize not only Oliver’s service and commitment to policing, 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.”
