The 4th annual Trooper Kevin Conner Memorial Run is scheduled Saturday, Oct. 15 in downtown Whiteville

Trooper Conner (B-551) lost his life during a traffic stop on October 17, 2018.

On October 19, 2019, the first Trooper Kevin Conner Memorial Run was held. The event was a huge success with over 900 runners participating. It was the largest organized race ever in Columbus County.

This year the community will come together for the 4th annual Trooper Kevin Conner 5k and 1 mile run in memory of his life and his dedication to protecting our community. All proceeds from this event will go into a scholarship fund in memory of Conner.
