Speedway was recently recognized by Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals as the Corporate Partner of the Year for 2019 for its outstanding partnership and commitment to supporting the network of member children's hospitals.
The Corporate Partner of the Year award recognizes an outstanding organization that has demonstrated extraordinary commitment to CMN Hospitals or Foundations through innovative fundraising and awareness initiatives.
"Speedway really is fueling miracles," said Teri Nestel, interim president and CEO of CMN Hospitals. "The company saw a remarkable 25 percent fundraising increase in 2019 to $11.8 million thanks to some innovative campaigns like the coloring book, growth in their annual golf tournament and the launch of the pin pad donation ask."
Speedway's partnership with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals began in 1991 and has since raised more than $121 million for the children’s charity through various fundraising activities.
The retailer's recent expansion to the West Coast allowed it to support 17 new CMN Hospitals, and now broadens the reach of their impact to a total of 80 CMN Hospitals across America.
