Navy SEAL Museum to Receive Proceeds From Spartan Hurricane Heat 12-Hour Event

Fort Pierce, Fla. – February 27, 2020 – The Navy SEAL Museum is pleased to announce proceeds from the Spartan Hurricane Heat 12-Hour endurance event will be donated to its Trident House Charities Program. The November 8-9 event was an overnight test of will for participants who endured 12 hours of relentless rain, sand, obstacles, and mental challenges through simulated SEAL training–similar to that of BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training–as dictated by Navy SEALs.

“We could not be more pleased with the outcome of our newfound partnership with Spartan,” said Rick Kaiser, Navy SEAL Museum Executive Director. “Similar to BUD/S, athletes were pushed to their personal limits in true Frogman conditions; the Hurricane Heat mindset aligns with the Navy SEAL mentality of never quitting. We are grateful to Spartan for providing this opportunity and thankful for their charitable donation as a result.”

Spartan has a long legacy of challenging the perceived limits of the individual’s ability, both mentally and physically. With a wide variety of events to choose from, participants are encouraged to take their fitness and mental toughness to the next level by adopting the unique Spartan mindset and lifestyle. This first ever Hurricane Heat in Fort Pierce coincided with the Museum’s 34th Annual Muster Weekend. In addition to the entry fee, participants were encouraged to fundraise for the Museum’s charitable outreach.

With press and public welcome, the official check presentation will take place at the Navy SEAL Museum on Thursday, March 5th at 11:00 AM.
