“Trooper Kevin Conner Memorial Run” scheduled Oct. 19


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

On October 19, 2019, the community will come together for a 5K and 1 Mile Run in Whiteville in memory of Trooper Conner’s life and his dedication to protecting our community.
