Christopher Platt's Fundraising Page

Hey, thanks so much for visiting my page! I’m honored to be playing in the 11 Day Power Play to raise awareness for cancer and help fight this ugly disease. Last year, the participants played for 11 straight days, breaking a record (maybe some bones) for the longest hockey game and raising over 1.2 million dollars for cancer research. This year, as many as 150 teams have entered to play a game and each game will be played for 4 hours. You might say we got off easy this year.


Unfortunately, we all know someone who has been affected by cancer. I’m proud to have the opportunity to continue to raise awareness and take part in this charity event to raise money towards research. I love hockey and will be playing for anyone and everyone who has been affected. My goal is $500 but I’m hoping to raise as much as I can towards our team goal of $5,000. Please join me in the fight and come watch the action!


Thank you for your support in helping my team reach our 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 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.
