Angela Taylor Memorial Walk/Run
Important Update – We are sorry to advise that the 2020 Angela Taylor Memorial Run Walk will be cancelled due to the current health advice.
The proceeds from the event was supporting the upgrade of the women and children’s precinct at the Angliss Hospital, located in Ferntree Gully, in honour of Victoria Police members who have died in the line of duty.
We will of course be offering refunds to anyone that has registered or people can opt to donate their registration fee as it will support the Angliss Hospital project. Please note any donations over $2 are tax deductible.
We hope that people might also consider still taking a walk or run in their local area on Sunday 19 April, in memory of Constable Angela Taylor.
The Angela Taylor Memorial Run/Walk was started in 1989. This is community event that welcomes individual runners or walkers, juniors, nippers, 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 Rose Taylor is, and will remain a symbol of all that is good in the police. 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 her honour.
