My Message

Update - Please read - 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 Feb 18th, 2017) 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 $ 3,495.00 as of this morning. Please tune into WKYC-TV Cleveland on Saturday morning at 7:15am 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 the link below to make sure your donation has been credited to my specific jump. If you do not see your name, please IM me 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 the donate now button above or on a link below the page.  Please be sure it links to the page for Jim Kandrac's jump.   Thank you!

Friends, Family & Business Associates:

I need your help. On February 18th 2017, I have committed to “freeze my body and warm my heart” to raise money to feed people and fight hunger by taking an icy dip into the Portage Lakes alongside hundreds of other warm-hearted people at the 14th Annual Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump.  All proceeds will go to The Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank.

I know – you’re probably getting cold just thinking about it! The cold that I will feel is temporary, but impact of your support will go far as every dollar that is donated provides four meals for the hungry in our community.

I have donated $250.00 myself and have set a personal fundraising goal of $5,000.00 and I need your help to reach it! So no, I’m not asking you to take the Jump with me, but instead, I am asking if you will make a donation on my behalf for braving the icy waters at the Jump.  Any amount would be appreciated.  The dollars all goes to a wonderful cause, and every little bit gets me that much closer to my goal.

Think warm thoughts for me as February 18th approaches; I will do my best to make my supporters proud!

Thank you for your support!
