Andrew Case doesn’t waste his life thinking about what fate has taken away from him. He is too busy being thankful for all of the good things, and people, in his world.
Case, 52, is a Buffalo native who laced up his skates to play in the 11 Day Power Play Community Shift at HarborCenter in Buffalo July 5-15. The Community Shift is the sequel to last summer’s 11 Day Power Play that saw 40 men raise $1.2 million for Roswell Park Cancer Institute as they attempted to break the record for the world’s longest continuous hockey game.
The Community Shift opened the game to the public and welcomed more than 1,500 new skaters into the war on cancer.
Case takes a great deal of pride and humility in being one of the original 40 who pioneered this game plus the honor of taking the ceremonial opening faceoff in both games.
