The Cause

On June 24, 2004 Christopher S. Cash, Company Commander of Alpha CO 1-120th Infantry, North Carolina Army National Guard, made the ultimate sacrifice while serving his country in Iraq.

During his lifetime, Chris was committed to helping others: his family, his friends, his co-workers, his community, and his country. His memory remains ever present in the hearts and minds of those he touched and inspired with his care and generosity.

The Reindeer Dash for Cash is a fundraising event to benefit the Captain Christopher Cash Memorial Foundation of NC, Inc. All proceeds are awarded as college scholarships at East Carolina University, ECU Army ROTC, ECU Air Force ROTC, NCNG Association Educational Foundation, and NC Wesleyan College.

Each year, the foundation offers deserving students the financial assistance needed to pursue a higher education and the accompanying rewards of learning and character development achieved through hard work and dedication of earning a professional degree.

It is his legacy of giving to others that we strive to carry on in honor of his memory.

Keeping His Legacy Alive

Chris had many wonderful traits.  His vibrant smile and contagious laugh are just two of many.  He had a drive to help others and he loved serving his country.  In his spare time he ran with Team In Training helping to raise money for Leukemia and Lymphoma cancer research.  Now, thanks to your registration and/or donation, we are able to continue his legacy of giving.
