The Blake Reed Memorial Mile has been scheduled for Saturday, May 9, at McPherson College.
Blake was the manager of the McPherson High and McPherson College football teams, serving four years apiece. He was an inspiration for both teams with his ever-present smile and unwavering positive attitude.
After a life-long battle with Muscular Dystrophy, Blake died Aug. 3, 2010, at the age of 22. To create a legacy for Blake's commitment to Bulldog football, his family established the Blake Reed Mac2Mac Football Scholarship.
The race is set to begin at 10 a.m. All proceeds go to benefit the Mac2Mac Football Scholarship. The entry form can be found by going to www.macbulldogs.com.
