BEACHCOMBER PROVIDES MORE FUNDING FOR OLYMPIC HOPEFULS

For the second time since 2003, Beachcomber Founder Keith Scott has made a significant donation to Canadian Olympic hopefuls Attention: Business/Financial Editor, News Editor, Sports Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 20, 2005) - Beachcomber Hot Tubs presented a cheque for $72,000 to the See You In Torino Athlete's Fund at their event called "The Italian Job," Tuesday May 17th, 2005. This money will go directly to support Canadian Amateur Athletes, 70% of whom live below the poverty line, without enough funding for training, living expenses, coaching, or even proper nutrition.

This is not the first time that Beachcomber has stepped up in support of Canadian amateur athletes. Prior to the Athens Summer Olympics, Beachcomber founder Keith Scott gave $75,000 to the same fund which, at the time, was called the See You in Athens fund. "Canadian athletes deserve the opportunity to be the absolute best they can be." Says Scott. "We do have world class talent here in Canada, and one of the biggest challenges they face today is finding proper funding, so I feel that we in corporate Canada have a responsibility to do what we can to help these athletes."

Scott has a personal connection to this cause as well, having competed for Canada in the 1960s he understands, personally, the challenges faced by today's amateur athletes. "When I competed for Canada, it was always a struggle to balance life and training, and I know that having enough money to not worry about the basics of life makes it much easier to maintain that balance." Says Scott.

Beachcomber Hot Tubs' focus since 1978 has been to provide people with health, happiness and well being through the life giving properties of water. "Connecting family friends and loved ones." Beachcomber makes over 16 different models of hot tub available through over 300 distributors in North America and Europe.
