Brockville – The annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial ‘Run to Remember is set to make it’s annual stop in Brockville this Friday afternoon.
Runners will leave Lyn Rd. and Highway #2 at 5:00 pm, this Friday, September 27th and travel east on King St to Court House.
There will be a brief ceremony at Courthouse Green at approximately 5:30 pm.
The National Peace Officers’ Memorial Run and the Brockville Police welcome and encourage all citizens to come out and join them on their run.
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 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.
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 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.
