CAMBY, Ind. (WISH) – A bike ride organized to raise money in memory of Nathan Trapuzzano was rained out on Saturday, but that didn’t stop people from donating.
A dozen people met at Heavy’s Bar and Grill for food, an auction and a lot of fun. The money raised is for The Nathan Trapuzzano Memorial Fund.
Nathan Trapuzzo, 24, was killed in April 2014 while on his morning walk in his neighborhood. Surveillance video showed a suspect following Trapuzzo before gunning him down. Trapuzzo was a newlywed whose wife was pregnant at the time.
Trapuzzano’s mother, Cheryl, said her son had a passion for children who grew up without a parent. She said that’s now her granddaughter’s reality.
She said, “You know what? Since this has happened, and it’s been more than a year ago, the support for the people around here has been tremendous. Financial support, emotional support, people in Indianapolis are wonderful.”
