Riverton, UT (Vocus) July 27, 2010
Bullfrog International is happy to have the opportunity to donate a top of the line Bullfrog Spa to aid in fund raising efforts for The Children’s Miracle Network, which funds programs at children’s hospitals for children with severe illness and acute medical needs.
The upcoming fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network will directly benefit Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Primary Children’s Medical Center is the premier children’s hospital in the Intermountain West, serving children from Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, and beyond.
The impressive Model 682 Bullfrog Spa, Bullfrog’s largest spa model which seats up to 8 adults and retails for close to $11,000, will be on display at a charity golf tournament from July 29-31, 2010. The fund raising auction will be on July 30 at the Homestead Resort in Midway, Utah where the tournament will be held. All of the proceeds from this auction go to Primary Children’s Medical Center to fund critical medical and recovery programs for children.
Bullfrog was contacted by Steve Sorenson of Smith’s Food and Drug, a major sponsor of the Children’s Miracle Network, requesting the donation. Mr. Sorenson, who is heavily involved in the fundraising efforts for this event, commented, “We really appreciate donations like this amazing Bullfrog Spa because, not only does it directly benefit the kids by bringing in thousands of dollars, but the person who buys the hot tub gets something of great value that actually improves their own health.”
Bullfrog International is proud to manufacture hot tubs and spas that promote a healthy lifestyle. Recent studies have actually shown that hot tub therapy provides some very important health benefits. Researchers at the National Aquatics and Sports Medicine Institute are finding that soaking in a hot tub, like the Bullfrog Spa Model 682, provides relief of stress by bringing the autonomic nervous system into balance, which leads directly to improved physical and mental function, a real sense of calm and wellness, and better overall health.
Immersion in the warm swirling waters of hot tubs has also been shown to increase circulation, promote better sleep, relieve symptoms of diabetes, and to reduce pain and swelling in muscles and joints after workouts or injury.
Bullfrog International, The Children’s Miracle Network, and Primary Children’s Medical Center hope to continue to work together to provide critical medical care to kids in need and health and wellness to everyone.
