Speedway® Raises More than $19 Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2021

Speedway customers, vendor partners and employees continue to raise critical funds for local
member children’s hospitals

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (March 30, 2022) — Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. But they can’t do it alone – they believe in the power of partnership to unite communities in changing kids’ health and the future.

For more than 30 years, Speedway and their customers, vendors and associates have raised
critical funds needed to advance pediatric healthcare, improve individual patients’ health,
protect our children’s futures and enhance local communities. In 2021 alone, Speedway, part of
the 7-Eleven family of brands, raised more than $19 million for the organization through in-store
campaigns, promotions and the annual Speedway Miracle Tournament.

Of those $19 million raised, more than $2.5 million supported local member hospitals through
the annual Speedway Miracle Tournament, impacting 43 hospital markets and millions of kids.
Patient families, who attend the event from these member hospitals, share their stories and the
impact of donations in funding critical treatments and services at children’s hospitals. In 2022, Speedway stores will continue to give customers the opportunity to donate for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.

“Speedway continues to show the power of partnership for our member children’s hospitals by
uniting local communities around our universal cause and transcending donations into massive
impact that shapes our collective future,” said Teri Nestel, president & CEO of CMN Hospitals.
“We’re grateful for their dedication and look forward to the impact we can make, together.”

Now more than ever, philanthropy is crucial to ensure children’s hospitals are supported so that
kids continue to receive the best care possible – no matter life’s circumstances. Donations can
transform how children’s hospitals meet the urgent needs brought on by the pandemic, while still maintaining an exceptional standard of care and well-being.

“Speedway customers and associates have an unwavering commitment to supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the communities in which we operate,” said Rankin Gasaway, 7-Eleven Executive Vice President Chief and Administrative Officer. “We are looking forward to continuing and growing our partnership and we invite customers to help us give back throughout the year.”
