Every year, The Polar Bear Jump grows. The event started in 2004 when just 70 people jumped into the lake. Last year nearly 800 people participated. Heather and Kelly Pariso along with Jeff and Debbie Fulkman came up with the idea as a fun way to raise money to give to charity. They are members of the Portage Lakes Polar Bear Club. Their club set the goal of raising $ 150,000, which translates to 600,000 meals, for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The foodbank provides food and essentials to close to 500 food pantries, hot meal provision sites, shelters, and hunger relief programs in eight counties of Northeast Ohio.
