US hot tub manufacturer Marquis Spas has donated its 500th hot tub through the Make-a-Wish foundation, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

The hot tub was presented to a three-year-old Denver boy on 9 June, and will help with his condition which has been diagnosed as a brain disease called septic encephalopathy.

Marquis president John Schrenk said: “It's incredibly rewarding that through our hot tubs we are able to add some happiness and improve the wellbeing of so many kids with life-threatening conditions. It feels wonderful to see our spas create a sanctuary for the wish kids and their families.”
