This summer, I will be participating 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 with each shift featuring two new teams. Unfortunately in my life cancer has taken some wonderful people and without having these people in my life I would not be the person I am today. I will be playing in two four hour shifts the weekend of July 13th in honor of my grandparents, my uncle and my wife’s mother. The purpose of this important event is to raise funds for cutting edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center; support programs that improve quality of life for children, adults and families affected by cancer through Camp Good Days and grant wishes and amazing experiences to kids with life-threatening illnesses through Make-A-Wish Western New York. Although it may be physically challenging for us 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. You can help make a big difference by supporting my effort in The 11 Day Power Play Community Shift.

ABOUT 2018 Community Shift

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.
