Last year, I played in the 11 Day Power Play in honor of those that might be affected by cancer in the future. Little did I know that less than 6 months later my family’s world would be turned upside down when, at the age of 4, our son Owen was diagnosed with (ALL) Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He is a fighter and a warrior and more importantly, a hockey player!!! Please consider making a donation to this wonderful event in his honor as he continues his own battle with cancer. Thank you! #OwenStrong #Warrior
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.
