Who is Mike Reid and what's this tournament all about?
Mike Reid was a popular resident of Greenfield Park, Quebec who passed away from Duschenne Muscular Dystrophy in 1984 at the age of 20. It was because of Michael’s love for sports that initiated his family and friends to want to continue Michael’s enthusiasm. The idea of an Annual Softball Tournament in his memory was the ideal. The Tournament would be held in his community - Greenfield Park, where many people knew him, and would be played by the people who loved him most - his family, friends and The Mackay Center. To make things more perfect, all proceeds would go back to where he gained much support - The Mackay Center School. Since the first Annual “Mike Reid Softball Tournament” in August 1985, The Tournament Committee, teams from all over Canada and the hundreds of volunteers have been able to raise almost $1,000,000 for the Mackay Center School and other local charities in the Montreal area.
