My Message

I need your help. On February 17th 2018, My brother and I have committed to raise money for the kids of Akron Rotary Camp and Ronald McDonald House by taking an icy dip into the Portage Lakes alongside hundreds of other warm-hearted people at the 15th Annual Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump.

The cold that we will feel is temporary, the appreciation we have for Ronald McDonald house is permanent given that they provided critical housing for 110 days for my brother 22 years ago after the birth of my nephew Ethan.  As a Rotarian I can also add that the impact of your support will go far to help both the kids of Ronald McDonald House & Akron Rotary Camp.

I have set a personal fundraising goal 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 – it 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 17th approaches; I will do my best to make my supporters proud!

Thank you for your support!

Big thank you to everyone who supported me for the Polar Bear Jump. Unfortunately I spent yesterday at the hospital battling a kidney stone that is still with me so I won't be getting wet today. I am sending my Twin in my place which seems appropriate since he is a former resident of several Ronald McDonald Houses. Thank you again!
