About the Chris Moore Legacy Fund

It’s not often you come across leaders who can be tough and funny at the same time. Ohio’s Chris Moore, who served as president of the United States Curling Association and passed away from cancer in 2009, was one of those leaders whose memory continues to live on in the curling community and beyond. Chris had a passion for growing the sport of curling, especially at the youth level. That passion will be brought to light again as his family is donating the trophies in his honor for the new USA Curling U18 National Championship.

Chris was in the middle of his term as president of the USCA when his cancer diagnosis hit home. Chris had long served on the USCA Board of Directors as a representative for the Great Lakes region and as USCA vice president of championships.  Chris also called Mayfield Curling Club in South Euclid, OH his curling home from the time he was a junior until he passed away in February, 2009.

When his fund was established, Chris expressed that he wanted it to have a two-pronged purpose: he desired to, one, promote the future of the sport of curling, and, two, promote youth curling at the grassroots level. While he always supported the elite championship events, he still had a heart for the grassroots curlers who are the bulk of those who participate in the Roaring Game that he and his family all love so much.

"In addition to being a tremendous leader for curling in the United States in so many ways, Chris was a friend and mentor to me, and to this day there are many words of wisdom from him anchored in my office and ingrained in my mind.  I am so pleased that the Moore family has chosen to build upon Chris’s legacy by supporting the U18 program, and am also thankful for USCA Vice President Courtney Schmidt’s role in bringing this to fruition." -Rick Patzke, USCA CEO

With your support, we can help realize Chris's dream in supporting our youth and continuing to grow the sport we love from the ground up.
