Going swimming during winter might not rank at the top of great ideas, but with (KNR) Kisling Nestico & Redick, the case is different. KNR is one of the leading law firms that offers injury law representation to clients in the state of Ohio, and it will be preparing for the 16th edition of the Portage Lakes Bear Jump, an event that has been taking place annually.
The legal practitioners, their support, and the entire KNR team will be transforming themselves into polar bears so that they can take part in the Portage Lakes Bear Jump, an event that will see participants take a plunge into the icy cold and chilly lake. Kisling, Nestico & Redick plans to raise a minimum of $25,000 during the 16th edition of the charity event. The funds KNR will be raising this year will go to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
Like the years before, the KNR team are inviting both individuals and teams to come out and show them support. The KNR team is also throwing a friendly challenge to other event participants to try bumping them off the event’s leaderboard. Last year, Kisling, Nestico & Redick raised a record $26,000; this was the most raised by any participating team during last year’s edition of the charity event. The Portage Lakes Bear Jump is an event that continues to take place since its inception in 2004. During this time, the event had only 70 participants, something that contradicts the event’s attendance over the past few years, with last year attracting more than 800 participants.
The founders of the Portage Lakes Bear Jump are Kelly, Jeff, Heather Pariso, and Debbie Fulkman, individuals who also happen to the Portage Lakes Bear Club founding members. These individuals came up with the club and the event as fun ways to raise funds for their charitable cause.
Kisling, Nestico & Redick continue to be one of the sponsors of the Portage Lakes Bear Jump. KNR is also a proud supporter of other charitable causes, and they have been able to raise more than $109,000 to support various local organizations. KNR has more than a decade of experience in the legal space, and the firm currently has 37 experienced lawyers and more than 130 support staff.
