I will be playing hockey for a three-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 will be played by more than 2,500 hockey players to raise critically-needed funds for important cancer causes. Our Team, 5 4 Fighting Cancer will be on the ice Monday, July 8 from 6:00 - 9:00 AM. 


Donations raised will benefit The 11 Day Power Play, and cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Camp Good Days and Make-A-Wish Western New York. In the past two years, The 11 Day Power Play has raised nearly $2.5 million for cancer causes in our community.


I am playing in memory of my Mom and two sisters Judy and Pat who had cancer, and in honor of several family and friends who have survived cancer or are currently battling cancer including Marcel D, Blake S, Danny R, Robert R, Steve F, and Kelly DK. I also just got the sad news my friend Brandon's dad Robin B just lost his battle to cancer. It seems every time we turn around, someone else is afflicted! Let's keep up the momentum to beat this thing! 


I cannot believe the generosity of my friends, family and colleagues: Today we have exceeded the goal of $4,000 and posted a photo of many of the donors who have generously helped us top the $4,000 total.  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 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.


Together, we can continue to make an impact in the search for a cure, and better the lives of those living with cancer. Thank you for supporting me!

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.
