“Celebrate Life” Sculpture Unveiling

November 3rd at 2PM, Cedar Creek Park in Seaford, NY

October 24, 2013, Huntington Station, NY – On Sunday November 3, 2013 at 2pm Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano will unveil the “Celebrate Life” sculpture in memory of a bicyclist at Cedar Creek Park in Seaford, New York.

In the summer of 2009, 19-year-old Matt Scarpati went out for a bike ride on the Wantagh State Bike Path and never came home.  Matt was fatally struck by a drunk and speeding 44-year-old motorcyclist, who is currently serving a prison sentence of 3-9 years in an upstate correctional facility.

The mission of the Miles for Matt Foundation is to support the educational journey of students, their development through sports activities and recreational safety in public venues in memory of Matthew Scarpati (19), who was killed by an adult driving under the influence.  The Foundation advances this mission primarily through its work in education, athletics and medical research and strives to continue the interests and goals that Matt held.

The Foundation hosted a Bike Tour in June 2010 on the Wantagh State Parkway to mark the coming installation of the guard rails that now protect 4.5 miles of the bike path.  We were presented with a ghost bike, the loving effort of Matt’s friends to create a memorial at the site of the crash.  However, New York State would not allow the ghost bike to be placed on or near the site.  We turned to Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, who has supported our efforts to work with Nassau County Parks and Recreation.

Through the efforts of noted sculptor, Michael Alfano, (http://www.michaelalfano.com) we were able to see a photo of Matt on his Colnago, transformed.

We invite all to attend to commemorate a loved brother, son, and friend.
