After completing the Original 11 Day event back on 2017, I said I would PROBABLY never do it again. It didn't take much arm twisting to get me to apply this year. Fortunately I was selected. People ask me why I am doing it again. The simple reason is because I can. I have a family that is supportive of me doing this and I am healthy...well except for being out of shape and overweight:). Healthy with respect to the fact that I am not going through chemo treatments like my mom and so many others have had to do. I am not on the couch or in bed all day long due to the fact that I am not eating and have no strength as a result of those chemo treatments. If you can get out of bed each day, then you can push yourself to train for a grueling 11 days of hockey. In the end those 11 days are a fraction of what someone with cancer goes through.
I need your support! I am one of forty players playing in the world's longest hockey game to fight cancer outside in the elements. That's right 252 hours of hockey! Proceeds of the event will support cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Make-A-Wish WNY, Camp Good Days and Roswell Park and Oishei Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Program.
