2017 Speedway Miracle Tournament Raises nearly $2.5 million

Speedway raised nearly $2.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during the 26th annual Speedway Miracle Tournament at NCR Country Club in Southwest Ohio. The tournament is the centerpiece of Speedway’s annual fundraising efforts for the 56 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the 21 states in which Speedway operates.

Over 800 golfers joined in two days of events—including 18 holes of golf, a gala dinner and medals ceremony, art auction, raffle drawing and prizes—all to raise money for sick and injured children treated in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. During the gala dinner, the Miracle Child Art Auction raised over $37,000 alone.

As golfers made their way around the course in a four-person scramble event, they were greeted by a total of 31 Speedway Miracle Children—pediatric patients treated in 27 different CMN Hospitals—and their families who sold raffle tickets and golf balls for the cause.

“Speedway is an important partner and understands that one of the best ways to support kids in communities where their stores are located is to raise funds for children’s hospitals,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of CMN Hospitals. “This event is a tremendous help in ensuring children’s hospitals have the funds they need to care for sick and injured kids, and we are grateful for Speedway’s commitment to helping kids.”

Since 1991, Speedway has raised more than $90 million for CMN Hospitals through a variety of initiatives, including year-round canister and icon campaigns in the stores and an employee payroll deduction program.
