ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – KOB’s Brittany Costello teams up with local, Shannon Miera,  to Pay it 4ward to a woman who helps organize and execute ‘Ghost Bikes,’ – memorials for those who have lost their lives on bicycles.

Gregory Martinez, Miera’s brother, was just 7-years-old when he was thrown from his bike to the road on Unser near Paradise in northwest Albuquerque.

He spent a week on life support before the family decided to take him off.

“24 years later, it still feels like yesterday. And I think any family that has gone through the tragedy like that would feel the same. There’s no way to describe something like that,” Miera said.

And so, she decided to reach out to Duke City Wheelmen Organizer, Jennifer Buntz.

Over the past year, the two worked on the memorial for Martinez.

“I brought her flowers when we were doing this and she said 'nobody has ever brought me anything to these memorials' and something about that stuck with me because we wanted to also as a family donate to her organization.”

Watch, in the video above, as Brittany and Shannon Pay it 4ward to Jennifer in this week’s segment.
