THE BRONX - A Bronx man who was killed last month by a hit-and-run driver was remembered Thursday.

Friends and family came together to honor Giovanni Jimenez, 26, who was killed last month. A white bike was presented at the memorial to raise awareness for people killed while riding their bikes. 

"This is not going to bring my son back, but at least I am going to feel peace in my heart. I need some peace in [my] heart," says Raisa Jimenez, Jimenez’s mother.

The driver of the vehicle has not yet been identified.
