Dear Dear friends and family,

 

Yes, that is right.  I will be playing hockey for a four-hour shift as part of one continuous hockey game called the 11 Day Power Play Community Shift. The game, which will last for 11 straight days at HarborCenter in Buffalo, New York from July 5 -15, 2018, will be played by more than 1,700 hockey players to raise critically-needed funds for important cancer causes.

 

These causes include cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center; and supporting programs that improve quality of life for children, adults and families affected by cancer, provided by Camp Good Days of Western New York; and, granting wishes and amazing experiences to kids with life-threatening illnesses, including cancer, by Make-A-Wish Western New York.

I am playing in this wonderful event to help raise money for a great cause and to support those who are fighting this horrible disease and those who have past that were very close to us. Please help in you can!

I have set a personal goal of [$1,000], and I am intent on exceeding it! Please consider making a donation today. No donation is too small, and every dollar adds up to something greater than any one of us could accomplish alone. To donate, visit my fundraising page at [11daypowerplay.z2systems.com/MichaelBerns], or send a check made out to The 11 Day Power Play to PO Box 4, Buffalo, NY 14223. Include a note directing your 100% tax deductible donation towards my goal.

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.

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 sara@11daypowerplay.com 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.
