About This Activity

On Saturday, August 15, 2015, the 10th Annual Officer Shawn Silvera Memorial 5K Run Presented by Blue Heron Days will take place at the Lino Lakes City Offices and YMCA. With a variety of activities for families and races for all ages, this event will honor Shawn's legacy and pay tribute to the community.
This run is to commemorate Lino Lakes Police Officer Shawn Silvera, who was killed in the line of duty on September 6, 2005, leaving behind a wife and two young children.
Shawn was charitable, living his short life of 32 years in service to others with integrity, devotion, character, compassion and strength. He embodied the powerful message carried by the words “BE HERE NOW – LIVE THE IMPORTANCE OF TODAY” - savoring daily moments, relishing opportunities to learn and appreciating his gift to help someone in need. It is for these reasons that we honor Shawn with this event.
Participants receive a commemorative Performance t-shirt and a goody bag.
This event is sponsored by the Chain of Lakes Rotarians, SMW Federal Credit Union and the City of Lino Lakes Parks & Recreation.
