Ride for Cherish Saturday morning
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Motorcycle riders started their engines Saturday in honor of Cherish Perrywinkle.
The Ride for Justice, an annual fundraiser for the Justice Coalition, was dedicated to the young murder victim.
Hundreds, including several law enforcement officers, participated in the 50-mile ride through Jacksonville and over several bridges.
The ride took place exactly one week after police found the body of 8-year-old Cherish.
The little girl was kidnapped from a Walmart on Lem Turner last week. Police found her body the next morning near a church on Broward Road. Registered sex offender Donald Smith is charged with her kidnapping and murder.
