Jim Kandrac to "go jump in the lake" tomorrow for a great cause!

Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump 2017 

Less than 1 week ago, I was asked and agreed to raise money for The Akron-Canton Food Bank by participating in the Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump 2017 event which is tomorrow - Saturday February 18th. A personal goal was set of $2,500.00 - I jump started the fund raising by donating $250.00.

I have been overwhelmed by family, friends and business associates who have contributed and brought my total to $3,595.00 as of this morning. Please tune into WKYC-TV Cleveland on Saturday morning at 7:00 am for a live interview with "yours truly" as the #1 individual fundraiser for the event. 

I will be live on TV - interviewed by WKYC's Jasmine Monroe. In total this years' event has raised over $100,000 for The Akron-Canton Food Bank and since it's inception of the event in 2004, the event has raised over $700,000.

If you have sponsored my cause, I truly appreciate it. Please click on my donation page to make sure your donation has been credited to my specific jump. If you do not see your name, please email me at so I can get it credited.

While we are at it .. why not raise the goal to $5,000.00?!

Please share with family, friends and encourage them to sponsor this great cause. Click on my fundraising page to donate!  

Thank you!
