Sean’s Fund honors the memory of Sean Christian Reader, who lost his valiant battle with leukemia on August 14th 2006. Sean, age 12, was a nationally-ranked chess player and fought his battle with cancer as fiercely as he faced any opponent across the chessboard.
Sean was Team Captain of the Meadows Elementary School Chess Team, coached by Jay Stallings of the California Youth Chess League, at the 2005 Super Nationals in Nashville, TN. The team placed 2nd among the nations best young chess players.
Sean’s Fund works with California Chess League (CYCL) to provide financial aid to those who need it to pay for chess classes and tournaments. Additionally, Sean’s Fund provides private lessons for children in the Santa Clarita Valley who suffer from cancer and brings chess to patients at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles who suffer from cancer and other serious ailments.
