Sean Reader Memorial Chess Fund for a special cause

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

This is about the Sean Reader Memorial Chess Fund hopes to keep enriching the lives of underprivileged children and children battling cancer through the game of chess.

Sean spent the final four months of his life at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. His family says the doctors and nurses at the hospital admired his will to fight and dubbed him a “champion and warrior.”

In Sean’s memory his parents established a scholarship fund in his name. The fund has gone on to help a lot of young players, young students in the elementary schools out here in Santa Clarita to participate in chess programs, chess camp, chess tournaments and different activities like that. In addition the fund has brought chess kits to young patients at Children’s Hospital and now at the City of Hope hospital as well. You can find more details at this link and an article at this link.
