2013 Polar Bear Jump

The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank President/CEO has volunteered to jump into the freezing Portage Lakes with the Polar Bear Club. On February 16, 2013, the 10th annual Polar Bear jump will raise financial donations to benefit the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

Last year, 750 people jumped in the frigid water, raising over $82,000 for local non-profits. This year the Foodbank is looking to shatter the record and make the 2013 Polar Bear Jump the most successful in history. Here’s how you can get involved.
