On July 28th, our friend and his family suffered the most unimaginable tragedy in Lafayette, California. As the result of a fatal bicycle accident, they had to say goodbye to their little light, Leo Cellura. He lived only 10 short years, but he was the best parts of all of us: inclusive, selfless, and empathetic.
Leo was a champion of diversity—which came from his own diverse background and from having to reinvent himself as he grew up among multiple cultures and in multiple countries. Even at a young age, Leo was all about defusing tense situations with kindness and supporting people who need help. He lived his whole life this way and he touched so many people as a result.
Although the Celluras are only starting to adjust to their devastating loss, they also hope to honor Leo’s memory and inspire others to live as their sweet boy did. The Live Like Leo Memorial Foundation is founded on the very principles Leo embodied: kindness, selflessness, and empathy. It will not reward young people based on their “accomplishments,” but will instead seek to build and support decent humans who care for others before themselves—and hopefully create whole communities of young people who live like Leo did.
Please join us in supporting their mission by donating to the Live Like Leo Foundation. All funds raised will be used only for the creation, funding, and support of this Foundation.
Rest in Peace, Sweet Leo.
