Angela Taylor Memorial Walk/Run
The Angela Taylor Memorial Run/Walk started in 1989. This community event welcomes individual runners, walkers, juniors, adults and seniors. There’s a category to match all levels of fitness.
At 1.00pm on Thursday the 27 March 1986, a car bomb exploded outside the police complex in Russell Street Melbourne. As a result, young Constable Angela Rose Taylor took the full force of the explosion and on 20 April 1986 died in hospital. Angela was committed to helping others in the community, our police and emergency services continue to demonstrate those values. The Angela Taylor Memorial Run/Walk continues to be held in honour of Angela and all Victoria Police members who lost their lives serving and protecting our community.
