Ride for Justice: Police escorted motorcycle ride to support victims of homicide trauma

Over his career, Chris Smith has covered all sorts of stories.

“Whenever I report on stories of violent crimes, I’m always so shocked by what triggers humans to hurt other humans the way some do.

“Then there’s all the strength and courage of the victims’ families. That never ceases to amaze me,” says Chris.

Since 1993, the Homicide Victims’ Support Group has been helping families of homicide trauma.

Each year they hold the Ride for Justice, a motorcycle ride to raise much-needed funds for the organisation.

This year the ride is taking place on Sunday 26 August, and Chris will be taking part for the time.

The annual event is the brainchild of Channel 9 leading crime reporter Simon Bouda.

“Unfortunately like yourself, I’ve dealt with too many tremendously tragic crimes,” he tells Chris.

The ride will start at Luna Park in Sydney’s Lower North Shore with riders heading south to Ebony House with a full police escort.

Simon says all the funds raised will go towards the construction of Grace’s Place, a centre for children of homicide victims.
