The Reindeer Dash for Cash is a fundraising event to benefit the Captain Christopher Cash Memorial Foundation of NC, Inc.

This year we are offering a lower registration fee which does not include an event shirt along with the option to purchase an event shirt if you want one. If you have enough race shirts already and don't want to pay for another one, you can enjoy the lower registration fee. If you want a shirt you have the option to purchase one.

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