Marquis Corp. and Make-A-Wish® team up to help wish kids find relief in the soothing water of a swim spa or hot tub. For the past eighteen years, Marquis® and its dealers have helped grant over 850 swim spa and hot tub wishes across North America for children with critical illnesses.
The partnership with Make-A-Wish was inspired by 17-year-old Andrea’s wish in 2000 to have a hot tub in her backyard. The hot tub eased the physical distress from her chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Now, many years later and cancer-free, Andrea continues to enjoy her Marquis hot tub. Her wish inspired Marquis to help with similar wishes. The partnership has already generated more than $4 million in spa donations and discounts for Make-A-Wish America, Make-A-Wish Canada and Make-A-Wish United Kingdom.
The partnership is very important to Marquis. In fact, Marquis even made a hot tub in honor of Make-A-Wish, the Wish hot tub. The Wish hot tub is shaped in a beautiful W and offers ultimate therapy for a family of four. Marquis also donates $25 to Make-A-Wish for every Wish hot tub purchased.
Marquis is proud to be the preferred provider for Make-A-Wish swim spa and hot tub wishes since 2000. Swim spa and hot tub wishes are ideal for children who require physical therapy in the comfort of their own home. Swim spas and hot tubs can provide great relief from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments that many wish kids have to endure. Swim spas and hot tubs also create a sanctuary for the wish kids and their families to connect and spend time together.
Here are just a couple of the many wishes we have been a part of!
