Thanks to the fallen officer's widow, that money will benefit other police families and youth in need for years to come.
"When we did this ride, we really hoped to get four or five thousand dollars and it would be really successful if we did. Well, we ended up getting $12,489.32," said Fred Fatute of Iron Shields Ohio - Clermont Chapter, which organized the ride.
"When they offered this money to Jessica Kim, she said as grateful as she was for that, she really wanted to see that money be paid forward," said Cincinnati police Lt. Steve Saunders.
Some riders and Kim's friends gathered Saturday for a check presentation at Harley-Davidson Cincinnati.
John Keuffer of Lighthouse Youth Services said he knew Kim for almost a lifetime.
"In September Sonny and I would have had 30 years of friendship. We met first day of college," Keuffer said.
"Although Sonny's not working the beat here … Sonny's just been reassigned. His watch hasn't ended, and Sonny had his wings long before they were given to him."
Kim was a beloved member of the community, a popular karate teacher and loving father of three teenaged boys. In June 2015, a despondent man with a gun lured him to a Madisonville street and ambushed him.
