He ran for others, and now others are running to keep his memory alive.
Captain Chris Cash was a National Guard member killed in Iraq, but his desire help his community, is the reason behind the Reindeer Dash for Cash. Its a fundraising run, which provides scholarship money to North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount. Nearly 400 people gathered to run Sunday morning, and Chris's widow, Dawn, knows this run keeps his spirit alive.
The National Guard was also on hand to remember their fallen brother in arms, and to also lend a hand in the run that bears his name.
