   The Annual Kristina Chesterman Bike Safety and Drunk Driving Awareness Event will take at Trinity Commons on the CSU, Chico Campus on Monday, September 10th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

   It's in memory of the late nursing student who was tragically killed while riding her bicycle on Nord Avenue 5 years ago, by a drunk driver who organizers say had a blood alcohol level 5 times the legal limit.

   Monday's event will feature free bike safety checks by mechanics from local bike shops, free bike lights, prize drawings, and information and education promoting drunk driving awareness proviced by the Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Council and local law enforcement agencies.   There will also be music provided by DJ Cootdog.

   Mike "G Ride" Griffith is behind the event. He says he gave Chesterman a ride in his pedicab the night before she was killed.  He says her family donated her organs and saved five people.  One of them, a Red Bluff man, will be on hand for the event.

   A health clinic has also been built in Nigeria in her memory.
