Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Run to Remember Stopped in Brockville on Friday Afternoon – VIDEO

Brockville – The annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial ‘Run to Remember made it’s annual stop in Brockville this past Friday afternoon.

Runners met up with local runners at Lyn Rd. and Highway #2 around 5:00pm, for the run into the city on King St to Court House, finishing up that leg of the run at Courthouse Green.

There wasa brief ceremony at Courthouse Green at approximately 5:30 pm welcoming the runners to the city.

They stayed over night then left early Saturday morning for the last leg of the run to Ottawa and ending at the National Peace Officers Memorial on Parliament Hill.

This year’s run is dedicated to the memory of Sgt. Doug Marshall, O.P.P. Southern Georgian Bay Detachment who passed away on April 10th, 2012.

The ‘Run to Remember’ is a 460 km relay that makes it’s way through many communities between the start at the Ontario Police Memorial site in Toronto to the end at the National Memorial on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

Not only does the run raise awareness about the National Memorial Service, it also gives peace officers and citizens along the route the opportunity to participate in some small way if they are unable to attend the actual Memorial Service.

The primary objective of the National Peace Officers’ Memorial ‘Run to Remember’ is to raise awareness and focus attention on the annual Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Service. The annual Service is held on the last Sunday of September in Ottawa with the run occurring over a three day period immediately preceding it.
