March to Show Support for Michelle Knight
CLEVELAND — From the towers of MetroHealth Medical Center to the Cleveland street that harbored a dark secret for a decade, the community marched in support of Michelle Knight.
Knight had been held captive in a Seymour Avenue home for more than 10 years before she was rescued Monday.
On Friday, she was released from the hospital but her long recovery is just beginning.
Friends, loved ones and caring community members met at Metro at 2 p.m. Saturday for the march to the intersection of Scranton and Seymour.
Everyone was asked to wear a red shirt or red ribbon in Knight’s honor.
Berry and DeJesus also went missing from the west side in 2003 and 2004 respectively.
Ariel Castro, 52, has been charged with kidnapping and rape in the case. Additional charges could be filed.
The Cleveland Courage Fund has been set up to help the survivors. Click here for details.
