Speedway raises funds for CMN Hospitals

Community News

The 28th annual Speedway Miracle Tournament raised more than $2.8 million in donations to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals®. Speedway held the annual fundraising event at NCR Country Club in Kettering, Ohio, in June. The Speedway Miracle Tournament set another new donation record this year thanks to the generous support of Speedway’s business partners and remains the centerpiece of Speedway’s annual CMN Hospitals fundraising efforts.

“We are so grateful to our remarkable partner, Speedway, for their ongoing commitment to CMN Hospitals and the miracle families they recognize each year at this tournament,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of the organization. “Each year, the Speedway Miracle Tournament grows bigger and better thanks to Speedway and their vendor partners who go above and beyond to make the kids and families feel so special. This event raises funds to help children’s hospitals care for sick and injured kids in communities where their stores are located.”

A total of 43 Speedway Miracle Children and their families, representing 40 CMN Hospitals across the country, attended the event. Almost 800 participating golfers had the opportunity to meet and interact with them while out on the golf course and hear their stories.  The event also included a celebration dinner with a medal ceremony for the kids.

“Thanks to the generous support from Speedway’s business partners, the Speedway Miracle Tournament continues to be a critical piece of our fundraising efforts, with record setting fundraising amounts each year,” said Glenn Plumby, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Speedway. “Just in the last 7 years, this tournament has raised almost $15 million to support local children’s hospitals. These funds are used for critical lifesaving equipment and much needed resources at the hospitals to help treat sick and injured kids. The 43 Miracle Children who attended this year’s event are a testimony to the value of our long-term relationship with CMN Hospitals.”

 Since 1991, Speedway has raised more than $109 million for CMN Hospitals, primarily through year-round fundraising in the stores and other initiatives such as an employee payroll deduction program.
