CHICO, Calif. - Several community organizations came together Monday to honor the memory of Chico State nursing student, Kristina Chesterman, killed by a drunk driver nearly five years ago.

The event was a collective effort from sponsors including bike shops, law enforcement and campus groups. It was all in an effort to raise awareness about bike safety and the tragedies of drunk driving.

Kristina Chesterman was hit and killed by a drunk driver while riding her bicycle on Nord Avenue.

Each year, her parents along with several community groups honor her memory at the annual bike safety and drunk driving awareness event.

Kristina's parents have a foundation and partnered with staff from Chico State to raise funds to build a clinic in Nigeria in her honor.

"It helps us through the grieving process to get involved and to try to prevent future drunk driving accidents," said Sandra Chesterman, Kristina's mother. 

Riley Dean Hoover was sentenced to seven years in state prison for DUI causing great bodily injury or death, according to Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey.
