The Captain Christopher Cash Memorial Foundation of NC, Inc was created to award scholarships in memory of Captain Cash. He was full of life and people were drawn to his magnetic personality and dedication. He lived to help people live long healthy lives, and he died making sure that his Soldiers and the Iraqi people received the same opportunity. As a civilian, he worked at ViQuest helping people achieve their personal health goals. In the military, while serving in Iraq, he was part of an effort to help the people of Iraq rebuild their country and ensured that they were able to live with the freedoms he loved and enjoyed in our great country. Having earned three college degrees himself, Chris believed in the value of education. He loved running, lived life to help others and, embodying the true giving spirit, Christmas was his favorite holiday season.
This foundation strives to capture the love for life that Captain Cash carried with him until the end. His legacy of helping others continues each December through the Reindeer Dash for Cash 10 Miler & 5k and is possible because of the love for his life and sacrifice that is shown by each and every participant, runner, sponsor or volunteer!
