Colorado Springs, Colorado: Spa Palace Hot Tubs of Colorado Springs has chosen their next recipient, Staff Sergeant Juan Colin of Fountain, Colorado, who will receive a FREE hot tub through the Hot Tubs for Heroes program. Hot Tubs for Heroes is a Spa Palace & Sundance® Spas sponsored program in conjunction with Wish for our Heroes Rocky Mountain Chapter and the US Army Fort Carson AW2, that provides free hot tubs to selected wounded warriors who require hydrotherapy for healing.
Staff Sergeant Colin is a 14 ½ year veteran, recently medically retired from Fort Carson, who served in the army as a 13B Artillery Cannoneer, a Gunnery Sergeant, MRT instructor; and Intelligence Security Manager. He served three different tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. During his first deployment to Baghdad, Iraq, he and his brother in arms were engaged in an RPG attack that led to many bodily injuries, earning him the Army’s Combat Action Badge. Many other injuries from following deployments followed, making life difficult to be as active as he was before with his family; including his wife Monica and 3 children, Jasmyne (19), Stevey (13), and Laura (9). Staff Sergeant Colin has received multiple awards and recognition during his army career, during deployments, and stateside, to include the bronze star for his last deployment to Kandahar, Afghanistan.
In his free time, Staff Sergeant Colin loves to coach and play soccer with his kids and enjoys spending time with them during their Jiu-Jitsu/Muay Thai classes. He also gives back to his community by actively donating to the Springs Rescue Mission and aspires to help wounded soldiers separating from service through therapy.
Hot Tubs for Heroes started right here in Colorado Springs when Spa Palace owner, Mike Wiege, wanted to commemorate Spa Palace’s 30th Anniversary. Since Colorado Springs is known for its large military population combined with the knowledge of hydrotherapy benefits; including reducing stress and promoting healing, Wiege knew there was a great opportunity to give back to his community. In 2016, Sundance® Spas announced “a nationwide partnership with W4OH, pledging a financial contribution, as well as a number of Spa donations” for the Hot Tubs for Heroes program.
