THE STORY:

Help the Chess Life editor raise funds for USCF scholastic chess programs by supporting his participation in the 2014 New York City Marathon!

USCF programs and events motivate students to stay involved in an activity that reinforces skills essential to success in the classroom and beyond. Students of all ages learn literacy, math, critical thinking, and life skills while engaged in chess.

I am attempting to raise $3,750 in support of this philosophy. Why this somewhat odd number? Because in September I turn 50 years old. That same month the USCF celebrates its 75th birthday. 50 x 75 = $3,750. The USCF has been very important to me throughout my life so using these 'magic numbers' as a way to give back to the organization satisfies my sense of symmetry.

Further, this year the USCF received a 501(c)(3) non-profit designation from the IRS so your donation is tax-deductible. All money donated (minus CrowdRise fees) will go directly to programs supporting scholastic chessplayers in the United States such as our World Youth team.  

About the editor: Daniel Lucas has been Director of Publications for the USCF since December 2005. His primary responsibility is serving as editor of Chess Life magazine, which has existed in various forms since 1946. Lucas was first introduced to chess by his father in 1972 during the Fischer/Spassky World Championship match. He has been running since 2008 and completed the Georgia Marathon in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

The USCF Mission: Empowering people through chess one move at a time.
