About Chris Munn
Chris played both rugby and lacrosse during his 4 years at Norwich (1977–1981) and served as captain of the rugby team his senior year. He led a team that excelled on the Dog River Pitch and won matches at the New York, Saranac Lake and Junior Weekend 7s tournaments.
Chris continued to play rugby with the various Army teams and club sides in Washington State after he commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant. After his distinguished military career, Chris retired from the Army as a Colonel. He then served as the Chief of Staff for the Mission Support Element at Fort Drum, New York.
In 2013, Chris was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) – a progressive, neurodegenerative muscular disease that is presently incurable. Today, Chris continues his personal fight against ALS and is dedicated to raising awareness of the disease.
All proceeds from the tournament, auction, and dinner will go to support the Chris Munn '81 Rugby Scholarship and Norwich Scrum Alums. The scholarship was awarded the past four years to eight Norwich rugby student-athletes and will continue to support the program into the future.
