To Our Christopher Cash Road Race Family,

It is with mixed emotions we announce that June 24th, 2017 will be the last Sanctioned “Run For Cash” 5K/ 3 MILE Walk Family Race Day.

At Run For Cash, we have always wanted to celebrate Chris’s life and service and you have all so generously helped us do that.  In fact, you have been so generous, to date, we have given out over $42,000 in scholarships to local students. 

June 24, 2017 falls on the Saturday of the 13th Anniversary of Christopher’s death.  He lost his life in a gunfire battle while serving our nation in Baqubah, Iraq.  And I’d like you to know that Christopher would have been 50 Years old on October 2, 2017.  I feel this date and this year reflect a fitting time to have a final memorial race day in Christopher’s honor celebrating his birth, his life and his love for our great nation.  It is still a celebration and let me tell you – it’s going to be a big one!

We would like you to know that our scholarship fund will continue for as long as we can sustain it.  After the 2017 race, the website will reflect our scholarship program, the application process and recognition of the recipients.

With this said, we thank everyone who have participated, volunteered, sponsored or in any way shown their love towards our son U.S. Army Christopher S. Cash.

Please join us in bringing The Run For Cash to the finish line on Saturday, June 24th, 2017.

With love and sincere thanks to all,

Nancy Lee Kelley
