HOW THE EVENT
GOT STARTED

Another miracle on ice

Another miracle on ice

Mike and Amy Lesakowski share many things in life, including a deep love of family, a passion for hockey and, unfortunately, a personal experience with cancer. Amy is a cancer survivor and Mike, is not only organizing the event, but also playing in honor of his mother, Evelyn who passed away from cancer in May 2016 at the age of 62.

Fed up with the hardship caused by this deplorable disease and fueled by their love of hockey, Mike and Amy, along with a very determined group of Buffalo friends, were inspired to take action. So they set a goal to break the record for the world’s longest hockey game while raising money for cancer research.

The Lesakowskis

Forty players. 250 Hours. $1M Goal.

The 11-Day Power Play will feature 250 hours of consecutive hockey from June 22 – July 3, 2017, at HARBORCENTER in Buffalo, NY. Two teams of 20 players will play the entire game and players will have a goal of raising $10K each to benefit Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

BATTLING CANCER ON THE FRONT LINES

Roswell Park Cancer Institute, located right here in Buffalo, is our nation’s first cancer center and a world leader in groundbreaking research in the fight against cancer. Their commitment to service excellence and compassionate care has made a profound difference in the lives of millions of cancer patients and their families.
