Oops I Did it Again! We are going back to the original format where 40 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! Our main objective to raise $1 million dollars towards Proceeds of the event will support cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Make-A-Wish WNY, Camp Good Days and Oishei Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Program.
I am dedicating this year to my dad Ed Haynes. He was fortunate and died a peaceful death at 87 years old December 21, 2020. He was able to live until 87 because of treatments he received at Roswell Park for Skin Cancer. I was lucky there is a treatment for skin cancer when caught early and an emphasis on prevention. This is only known because of cancer research at places such as Roswell Park in Buffalo, NY.
There are many breakthroughs in cancer treatment which I have witnessed firsthand since joining the 11-day power play team in 2017. Having raised over $5 million dollars towards specific studies has been rewarding beyond explanation. To Help those coping with the devastating affects cancer has on a family, specifically children, through Make A Wish and Camp Good Days is an immediate affect this event has, which can feel even more special in many ways.
The event takes place November 13 to November 24, 2021. As many of you know, this event involves a great deal of training on and off the ice. It is the perfect combination of playing hockey and raising money for a great Buffalo Cause! What could be a better tribute than that to a great man who taught me what is important in life. He loved this event! He Never missed one of my shifts the entire original 11-day event, whether it was 3 in the morning or 1 in the afternoon. He has never missed one of my 11-day community shifts either and he won’t miss one in 2021 because he will be with me in my heart every step of the way!
