This time last week Officer Kristina Tudor of LAPD Metropolitan Division was pounding her way through the LA Marathon carrying an extra 35 pounds wearing her full tactical  uniform.

See what she wore here…

Her mission for the marathon was to raise money for Venice based non profit Badge of Heart. Officer Ken Lew from LAPD’s Pacific Division founded the charity which helps provide assistance for families in need and victims of crime who face hardship. Read more about the work Badge of Heart does here.

Lew says he is grateful for those who donated to Tudor’s Marathon

cause, “I would like to say Thank you again for your “Gofundme” Donation for Officer Tudor.  She did great at the Marathon and her finishing time was 6:14:15. Not bad for wearing an extra 35 pounds, plus the HEAT.”

All up fundraising efforts raised a total of $5,781.  The money will be used to help purchase Emergency Preparedness packages for up to 200 low income families in the Westside of Los Angeles.  These packages will be distributed around May this year.
“Both Officer Tudor and I are very grateful and many families will benefit from your generosity,” says Lew.
