Answer: Cleaning up the fallen fruit is really important, so keep up the good work! If you allow the fallen fruit to remain, it can harbor insect and disease problems that can affect the cherries in subsequent years. One trick you can try to make this task easier: lay a fine-mesh net under the tree to collect the fallen fruit. Pull it up every day or two and discard the cherries, then lay it back in place. Also, you may have neighbors who would love to help you pick those extra cherries.
