The 5th Annual Mike Nichols Tournament, along with support from the New Jersey Devils and NJ Raiders supports Mikey Nichols, a Monroe Township High School & former NJ Raider ice hockey player who continues his recovery from a spinal cord injury (SCI) that was sustained during a game on Jan. 4 2013. Proceeds from the tournament go to the Nichols Family Trust and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research and improving the quality of life for individuals living with paralysis through grants, information, and advocacy.
