Marquis® and Make-A-Wish® team up to help wish kids find relief in the soothing water of a hot tub or swim spa. For the past sixteen years, Marquis® and its dealers have helped grant nearly 700 hot tub and swim spa wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions across North America and the United Kingdom.
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, 15 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.
THERAPY & CONNECTION
Marquis® is proud to be the preferred provider for Make-A-Wish® hot tub and swim spa wishes since 2000. Hot tub and swim spa wishes are ideal for children who require physical therapy in the comfort of their own home. Hot tubs and swim spas can provide great relief from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments that many wish kids have to endure. Marquis® hot tubs and swims spas 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, and our Dealers are so proud to have been a part of!
