Benefit for Family of Sgt. Chris Ward

Back the Blue NC, Inc. extends their thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathies to the family of Fallen Officer Sgt. Chris Ward of the Watauga Sheriff’s Office. To keep with our mission of "Giving back to those who are willing to give their all" our Organization is raising donations for the family of Sgt. Chris Ward, more specifically his children. In this moment of tragedy Back The Blue NC, Inc. Stand by ready to support the family in honor of Sgt. Ward's ultimate sacrifice. 

At a 13-hour stand-off at a residence in Boone, NC on April 28, 2021 Sgt. Ward was one of two officers shot by a barricaded suspect and unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries the same day after being air-lifted to a nearby hospital. He leaves behind a wife and two children. 

It is our intention to place funds raised into a trust fund for Sgt. Ward's children as we have previously done with fallen officers Deputy Hendrix and Deputy Allison and their respective children.
