Mike Lesakowski's Fundraising Page

This event is very personal to me. My mom passed away just a couple years ago and my wife is a survivor. In 2016, Amy and I organized this charity and in 2017 put on the worlds longest hockey game (yes I played hockey for 11 Days straight!) to raise some money for cancer research, never knowing it would evolve into a community event. We are proud Buffalonians who love our city, love hockey, and love how our communtity rallies to raise critical money for cancer research and cancer causes. One of highlights of the 2018 Community Shift for me was skating along side my son on numerous shifts...together we raised over $25,000!

Please help me to repeat my goal of being the top fundraiser and I will promise to skate in more shifts and play more hours than any other player!   

ABOUT 2019 11 Day Power Play Community Shift

This summer, more than 2,500 pairs of skates will hit the ice to play in the 2019 11 Day Power Play Community Shift to help in the fight against cancer! The 11-day game will be played in continuous shifts at Harborcenter in Buffalo, NY. This important event supports The 11 Day Power Play, raising critically-needed funds for cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Camp Good Days and Make-A-Wish WNY. While it is physically challenging to play in a marathon hockey game, it's a walk in the park compared to what most endure in their battle against cancer. Cancer is a disease that touches everyone, and The 11 Day Power Play wants to make an impact in our community. In the past two years, The 11 Day Power Play has raised nearly $2.5 million supporting cancer causes in Western New York.

Donations are graciously accepted online or by check. Please write checks out to 'The 11 Day Power Play' and send to PO Box 4, Buffalo, NY 14223. If you are interested in a sponsorship, contact Sara Schumacher today.
