Cyclist Kris Lee Chambers was struck and killed by a car on Wednesday, June 18. Gerardo Cazares ran a red light and hit the 38-year-old cyclist going westbound on Speedway Boulevard, close to Main Avenue, according to the Tucson Police Department.

Bicycle Inter-Community Art & Salvage is hosting a candlelight vigil in remembrance of Chambers tonight at 8 p.m., through the Dunbar Neighborhood.
Kris was an amazingly compassionate and dynamic friend, neighbor, and community member. Her loss is truly devastating, but we can't get through it alone. Let's begin the healing together.
The candlelight vigil will begin starting from the BICAS’ parking lot located at 44 West Sixth Street and ending at the "Bike Church" near North Main Avenue and West Davis Street, according to the BICAS Facebook event page. The Whistle Stop has offered its warehouse for as a "solace space." 

The organizers encourage that you bring bring candles, stories, and any tokens of remembrance. Everyone is welcomed.
