WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 2-8, 2020 UCW 11 Local ride benefits family of murdered boy by APRIL OLSEN On Aug. 9, 5-year-old Cannon Hin- nant was shot and killed while riding his bicycle outside his home in Wilson, North Carolina. Within days, the trag- edy became national news, and people across the nation rallied to show support to the Hinnant family by way of mes- sages, prayer vigils and charity events. When a local Hope Mills woman heard the news, she organized a local charity ride to raise funds for the Hinnant fam- ily. e Benefit Ride for Cannon Hinnant is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 5, start- ing at Fort Bragg Harley-Davidson on Sycamore Dairy Road in Fayetteville. "I am a mother, and it broke my heart," said Angela Sajko. "I wanted to do some- thing to show support." A motorcycle enthusiast herself, Sajko has been riding for 22 years. "In the biker community, we do a lot of benefit rides," she said. e ride is scheduled to end at Middlesex Elementary School in Middlesex, North Carolina, Sajko said the original end-point was advertised as the Wilson Fair Grounds, but law enforcement officials changed it to accommodate the number of riders expected. She has received interest from several out-of-state motorcycle clubs, including riders from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Texas. Any future updates to the route and/or destina- tion will be posted on the Facebook page, she said. e route leaves Harley-Davidson and travels down Morganton Road to Glensford Drive then to Hope Mills Road. e ride will hit I-95 and travel to Exit 121 to enter Middlesex, she said. e benefit ride will have a law enforcement escort the entire route to include Fayetteville Police Department in town, Highway Patrol while on I-95 and local police at Exit 121. Members of the Hinnant family will greet riders in Wilson, Sajko said. "We will be able to meet his mom and grandparents," she said, "but there are no official remarks or guest speakers scheduled. "is is about showing support to the family, to let them know that other parents and grandparents are grieving with them." e Sept. 5 Benefit Ride for Cannon Hinnant will begin at Fort Bragg Harley- Davidson on Sycamore Dairy Road in Fayetteville and end in Middlesex. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and kickstands are up at 11 a.m. "Registra- tion costs $20 for anything that is street legal," Sajko said, noting that motorcy- cles will lead the way for cars and trucks. All proceeds from the $20 registration fee will be donated to the Hinnant family. For more informa- tion visit https://www.facebook.com/fortbrag- gharley. APRIL OLSEN, Editor. COM- MENTS?
