Two Los Angeles police officers who ran 420 miles across the state for their fallen brothers and sisters arrived in Sacramento late Monday night.

Los Angeles Police Department Officers Joe Cirrito and Kristina Tudor finished their journey around 11:30 p.m. at the California Peace Officers’ Memorial in Sacramento. They were trailed by a line of police and fire vehicles.

Cirrito and Tudor started their run Nov. 27, alternating with one another over stretches of the journey. The officers completed the nine-day Project Endure run in their full Class-A uniforms.

Along the way, officers from local police agencies and correctional facilities joined them.

Project Endure is a volunteer project by nonprofit Bluecoat Music Inc., which is dedicated to raising awareness about fallen officers, according to a GoFundMe page set up to help defray safety costs associated with the run. As of Tuesday, the page had collected $26,851, surpassing the goal of $25,000.

Cirrito and Tudor dedicated their run and fundraising to police who have fallen in the line of duty. Funds raised are being donated to groups called Concerns of Police Survivors and the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation.
