Headline Goes Here

MIAMI - Members of Miami Police Department riding for Bella are expected to arrive in Key West about 3 p.m. Friday.

A week after her death, 10-year-old Bella Rodriguez-Torres is still inspiring others to "Live Like Bella."

On Wednesday morning, several members of the Miami Police Department began a charity bike ride from downtown Miami to Key West. 

The crew trained for this ride for several months. The money they raised will benefit the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which works toward curing childhood cancer. 

The Miami Police Department has taken a keen interest in Bella's case. The 10-year-old girl used to dream of becoming a police officer and was even deputized by Miami's department heads.

"At the end, it's a hard ride but it's nothing compared to the struggle that she went through, so I just think about the struggle she went through her whole life and it makes this a little bit easier," said Miami Police Officer Edward Lugo.
