2022 Speedway Miracle Tournament and Celebration Dinner Raises $3 Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®

Charitable Donation Will Help Advance Pediatric Healthcare for Local Member Children’s Hospitals Across the U.S.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (PRWEB) JULY 28, 2022 – Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) today announced that the 2022 Speedway Miracle Tournament and Celebration Dinner raised nearly $3 million to support its member children’s hospitals across the country. The annual event, hosted last month in Kettering, Ohio, by Speedway, part of the 7-Eleven, Inc. family of brands, is one of the largest charity golf tournaments in the nation. Combined with in-store fundraising campaigns conducted by Speedway – and through the generosity of customers, vendor partners and associates – the company has raised more than $150 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1991.

“At Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, we’re on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. But we can’t do it alone. For decades, Speedway has been an integral partner for our organization, helping to raise donations that make a huge impact in providing life-saving pediatric care at our hospitals across the country,” said Teri Nestel, President & CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Each year, we look forward to the Speedway Miracle Tournament and Celebration Dinner. Not only does Speedway and its vendor partners go above and beyond to make the kids and families feel special, but the funds raised help to make sure local member children’s hospitals are supported so that kids across the country continue to receive the best care possible – no matter life’s circumstances.”

Speedway Miracle Children

Each year, the highlight of the Speedway Miracle Tournament and Celebration Dinner is the Speedway Miracle Children, who are celebrated throughout the two days and serve as the face of their local member children’s hospital. More than 50 children and their families attended this year’s event, sharing their personal stories and highlighting the significant impact Speedway’s donations have made in funding critical treatments and services at children’s hospitals. Nearly 600 participating golfers had the opportunity to meet and interact with them while out on the golf course, and the kids also were honored with an inspirational medal ceremony at the dinner.

“Convenience may be our focus, but serving is our business, and that business extends beyond our stores and into the communities where our customers, employees and franchisees live and work,” said Rankin Gasaway, executive vice president and chief administrative officer for 7-Eleven, Inc. “We pride ourselves on being a great neighbor and leading through service to make the world a better place. Our 31-year-long partnership with CMN Hospitals allows us the opportunity to host events and celebrations that help to further their mission, and all funds raised this year will provide critical, lifesaving equipment and much needed resources to the communities we serve.”
