The Impact

You can help make a difference

When you make the commitment to donate, volunteer or participate in The 11 Day Power Play, you’re saving lives by supporting organizations dedicated to making a difference. The organizations we’re currently supporting include: Roswell Park®, Oishei Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Program, Make-A-Wish® and Camp Good Days.
