The Los Angeles Police Department will hold the Metropolitan Division’s 2nd annual Randy Simmons 5K fundraising event on Saturday.

The run begins at 8 a.m. at the Los Angeles Police Academy, 1880 N. Academy Road, in Los Angeles.

The run honors Simmons, a SWAT officer who was killed Feb. 18, 2008, as he entered a building in the San Fernando Valley to rescue people.

Simmons, a Rancho Palos Verdes resident, was a member of Carson’s Glory Christian Fellowship International Church and devoted his off-duty time to helping youth in troubled areas.

The Randal D. Simmons Outreach Foundation is a nonprofit organization designed to serve, empower and encourage families and individuals in underserved areas. The organization was established by Simmons’ wife, Lisa, to continue his legacy of spreading love and serving the community.

The proceeds of this event will benefit the Randal Simmons Foundation.

Runners can register for this event online at
