"Ride For Meadow" Raises Awareness, Funds For Memorial Park


Hundreds of motorcycle riders participated Saturday in the "Ride for Meadow" to support efforts to build a memorial park for Meadow Pollack -- a student killed in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

About 700 riders made the trek from Palm Beach Harley Davidson in West Palm Beach to the Pollock family's home in Coral Springs.

Andrew Pollack, is working to create "Meadow Park" to honor his 18-year-old daughter.

Meadow Pollack, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was killed in the Feb. 14 shooting at the school in Parkland.

Pollack plans to plant 17 trees inside the park – one for each of the people killed in the shooting. Pollack also wants to add water features, walkways and gardens. 

The Chabad of Coral Springs, a temple on University Drive, is providing the 15,000 square feet of land for the park. 

The temple and the Pollack family have also raised money for the park online, so far people have contributed nearly $150,000 to the cause.
