Thanks for taking the time and visiting my 11 Day PowerPlay Page!

First off — No, I am not playing for 11 straight days like the incredible group of players did last year... The format has changed this year and instead I will be playing an 11 Day Power Play 4hr Community Shift on Saturday July 7th from 6:00a - 10:00a. and am asking for your support.

The 11 Day Power Play is about more than playing hockey, it's about insuring that the funds required for cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Rosewell Park are available, making the impossible happen through Make-A-Wish Western New York and providing special times through Camp Good Days. 

Some of us have personal stories of how cancer has disrupted our lives and all of us have heard the stories... It's time to change the storyline. 

Thanks again for your time and support — Rico


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 sara@11daypowerplay.com 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.
