It was perfect weather Saturday morning for the Kevin Conner Memorial Run.

The event is held annually to honor the local native, a State Trooper who died in the line of duty near Whiteville on Oct. 17, 2018.

The 5k and one-mile events took participants from the Whiteville City Hall at Columbus and Madison Street to the courthouse and back.

The run raises money for a statewide scholarship for children of fallen officers and high school students planning to enter the criminal justice field.
