Our Message

Our Team needs your help! On February 26th 2022, we have committed to “freeze our bodies and warm my hearts” to feed people and fight hunger by taking an icy dip into the Portage Lakes alongside hundreds of other warm-hearted people at the 18th Annual Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump.

We know – you’re probably getting cold just thinking about it! The cold that we 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.

We have set a Team fundraising goal and need your help to reach it!  So no, We're not asking you to Jump with us, but instead, we're asking if you will make a donation on our 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 us that much closer to our goal.

Think warm thoughts for us as the big day approaches; We will do our best to make our supporters proud!

Thank you for your support!
