Olympic gold medalist helps ‘rock’ important fundraiser

By Chris Abood

cie, Michael and Tom Moore and USA Curling in honor of Chris Moore, was especially excit- ing because Tyler George, a member of the 2018 Olympic gold-medal winning U.S. men’s curling team, was literally in the house and stated how important it

C is to continue supporting young

curlers as they strive to emulate the great U.S. men’s and women’s teams. During his remarks Tyler also noted how he

first saw Chris Moore and admired his intensity while curling, and also Chris’s commitment to the sport both at the highest levels and at the starting point. Tyler also commented on his en- during friendship with Michael Moore as they grew up and curled together on the national and international stage. Our gold medalist was also kind enough to

take pictures with many of the attendees, gold medal typically draped across their chests! Also

attending were Courtney Schmidt, chairwoman of the USCA Board of Directors, and Mark Lazar, coach of the U.S. junior team that won the silver medal at the 2017 World Junior Championships in South Korea. Te Chris Moore Legacy Fund (Chris passed

away from cancer in 2009) was created in his memory by Jon Melzer, a close high school friend, and Kent Beadle, a past USCA Board member, and is a separate fund within the U.S.

leveland, Ohio “Rocked” at the Chris Moore Legacy Fund event on July 28. Te annual event, hosted by Tra-

Attendees at the annual Chris Moore Legacy Fund fundraising BBQ event in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 28, got to spend time with Olympian Tyler George, a longtime friend of Tracie Moore and Michael Moore, wife and son of Chris Moore (below).
