Surrey RCMP Const. Adrian Oliver was killed in a traffic crash with a semi truck on Nov. 13

A Surrey RCMP officer killed while driving his patrol car will be honoured during an annual memorial run on Sunday (Nov. 13).

Constable Adrian Oliver died four years ago – on Nov. 13, 2012 – when his patrol car collided with a semi-trailer truck at the intersection of 64th Avenue and 148th Street in Surrey. He was 28.

The fourth annual Adrian Oliver Memorial Run on Sunday morning will be held at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby.

The event raises money for Honour House, a place in New Wesminster described as a “home away from home and a place for recovery for emergency services personnel, Canadian Forces members, veterans and their families.”

In the wake of the crash in 2012, members of the Oliver family were welcomed by the Honour House.

The following year, the inaugural Adrian Oliver Memorial Run was launched by members of the Oliver family, friends and the Burnaby RCMP.

“Honouring Adrian’s memory and commitment to service by coming together and then supporting Honour House has been the perfect way to turn a tragedy into hope,” stated Constable Ben Oliver, Adrian’s brother.

“The event gets bigger and bigger every year and the growing support is inspiring.”

A/Commr. Joe Oliver, Adrian’s dad, said he can think of “no better way” for Adrian’s legacy to live on.

All proceeds from the (run) are donated to the Honour House Society and it is amazing to know that to date we have raised over $60,000 for such an important cause,” Joe stated.
