I love hockey and I hate cancer, so when the chance arose to play in the 11-Day Power Play and raise money for Roswell Park, Make-A-Wish and Camp God Days I think I volunteered for the team in record time. I've played hockey nearly all my life so the opportunity to raise money for these organizations and play the sport I love is perfect. The work that Roswell has done has not only saved millions of lives but the research they did played a hand in helping my sister beat Leukemia twice, becoming the first known case of a person with Down Syndrome to beat that horrible disease twice! So when I get the chance to lace it up this summer, I'll be playing for my sister who won her battle and all those I know have been or are still affected by cancer. I can't wait to get out on the ice with my buddies and teammates to play and I'm sure there might be a few extra donations for the number of blocked shots I have during my shift of the Power Play.
Thank you to all that donate and I can't wait to play in the 11 Day Power Play.
This summer, more than 1,700 pairs of skates will hit the ice to play in the 2018 11 Day Power Play Community Shift to help in the fight against cancer! The 11-day game will be played in continuous, four-hour shifts at HarborCenter in Buffalo, New York. Each shift will feature two new teams. The purpose of this important event is to raise critically-needed funds for important local cancer causes, including: cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center; supporting programs that improve quality of life for children, adults and families affected by cancer through Camp Good Days; and, granting wishes and amazing experiences to kids with life-threatening illnesses, including cancer, by Make-A-Wish Western New York. Although it may be physically challenging for our players to play four continuous hours of hockey, it will be a walk in the park compared to what some people have to endure in their battle against cancer. Cancer is a disease that touches everyone, and The 11 Day Power Play wants to make a difference, a big difference. You can help make a big difference by supporting our players' efforts in The 11 Day Power Play Community Shift.
As part of our fundraising efforts, we also offer various corporate sponsorships, providing value greatly in excess of the financial contribution. Please contact Sara Schumacher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-830-3805 for more information. Team sponsorships start at $1,100 and are first come, first serve.
Proceeds of the 11 Day Power Play Community Shift will benefit our local families while supporting cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Make-A-Wish WNY and Camp Good Days.
Donations are graciously accepted either online or by check. Please write checks out to 'The 11 Day Power Play' and send to PO Box 4 Buffalo NY 14223.
