Bullfrog Spas shows support for cancer research by fielding team for Relay for Life, a charity to benefit the American Cancer Society

Bullfrog Spas will be participating in the Relay for Life, a benefit for the American Cancer Society on July 13 and 14. The relay event itself is located at River Front Park in South Jordan, Utah, just a few miles from the Bullfrog Spas headquarters and factory.

Relay for Life is a charity event organized to benefit cancer research and outreach. Individuals and corporations commit to raising funds and circling a track non-stop to commemorate those lost to cancer and to show strength to those now battling the disease. As one or more team members walk, the other members of the team camp out around the track and all take turns walking laps throughout the night.

Relay for Life began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma WA colorectal surgeon, decided to run for 24 hours to raise awareness and funds for his local American Cancer Society. Today, inspired by this early all-night and all-day run, Relay for Life events are held across the nation to raise money for cancer research and awareness.

Team Bullfrog SpasSean McKinney, Director of Manufacturing at Bullfrog Spas, along with Patti Mahon, Bullfrog Executive Administrative Assistant, have been leading the company-wide efforts to raise money in fun and creative ways. Bullfrog has held contests, played games, charged good-natured fines for misspoken comments at meetings, and has provided some rather interesting contests to get company executives and managers to do all kinds of craziness when donation goals are reached.

Bullfrog is still a little short of reaching our goal. We want to raise around $2,000 dollars more before the event. Please help if you can.

Donations can be made here in the name of Bullfrog Spas:
