Thanks for your support! I am honored to have been selected as one of forty players to play in the world's longest hockey game to fight cancer outside in the elements. That's right-252 hours of hockey!
Not only are we looking to break the world record for the longest hockey game, but, more importantly, we are also raising $1 million to support families battling cancer in our community.
I will be playing to honor the strongest kid I know, Owen Chase, a seven year old warrior who just kicked cancer's ass! I am also playing in memory of my mother-in-law, Pam Gunning, who lost her battle with cancer in 2012, as well as a dear friend and co-worker of mine, Beau Bachtelle, who recently lost his battle with cancer at the age of 28.
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.
