Bullfrog Spas supports Special Olympics charity benefit, supplying 2 hot tubs to warm shivering swimmers.

Bullfrog Spas is proud to have sponsored the 2014 Polar Plunge, a benefit for the Special Olympics. The Saratoga Springs Polar Plunge event was held at the Pelican Bay Marina, on frozen Utah Lake near Bullfrog International headquarters.

The Polar Plunge is an entertaining event that is also not for the faint of heart or weak of constitution. Daring swimmers don crazy costumes of all types and garner pledged donations with a promise to jump into an icy lake and swim for charity. The lake venue for this event had to be cleared of nearly 8 inches of solid ice with the help of a chain saw and picks a few days prior to the swim. Ice, which continued to form on the open water, had to be skimmed several times just prior to the event.

Bullfrog Spas offered support by placing 2 large hot tubs near the edge of the icy lake. Swimmers can use the spas to reheat after their bone chilling swim. The hot tub is heated to around 100 degrees and, although it’s a bit of a shock to the system, is a welcomed site for chilled swimmers.

In addition to the swim, the event features a crazy costume contest, spin-the-wheel of prizes, music, food donated by local restaurants and grocers, along with a raffle for a host of donated prizes. Both individuals and corporate teams raise money that goes directly to Special Olympics. The event is hosted by the Saratoga Springs, Utah and Lehi, Utah police departments.

This year’s Saratoga Springs Polar Plunge was, held Saturday, February 22nd. It is one of several Polar Plunge fundraisers held around the world to benefit Special Olympics and give athletes of all abilities the opportunity to compete and succeed in their athletic aspirations. This is Bullfrog’s fifth consecutive year sponsoring the event.
