This July, I will be participating in the 2018 11 Day Power Play Hockey Game Community Shift to help in the fight against cancer! The 11-day hockey game will be played in continuous, four-hour shifts at HarborCenter in Buffalo, New York with each shift featuring two new teams.

I'm sure we all know someone who has lost the fight against cancer or who is a cancer survivor.  The reason I am playing is because cancer has brought pain and joy to my life.  Pain, because cancer took one of the greatest people I have ever known, Brian Finn, in 2007 from us.  Joy, because I have seen my brother in law, sister in law and a good friends battle cancer and win. 

I will be playing in two four hour shifts.  Saturday July 7th from 10am to 2pm I will be skating with good friends from my old senior hockey team Vinny's Bar.  Saturday July 14th from 2pm to 6pm I will be skating with more friends and current bald eagles team The Hawks.  I hope to see you there.

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.
