The tournament is the centerpiece of Speedway’s annual CMN Hospitals fundraising efforts and set a new record again this year thanks to the generous support of Speedway’s vendor partners. The event raised over $2.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

The Speedway Miracle Tournament, held at NCR Country Club, had nearly 800 golfers participate, giving them the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the children their funds support. The event also included a celebration dinner with a medals ceremony for the kids, along with a surprise visit from golf legend Jack Nicklaus and his wife Barbara, who are long-time supporters of CMN Hospitals and founders of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.

“We are so grateful to our remarkable partner, Speedway, for their ongoing commitment to CMN Hospitals,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of the organization. “They have raised more than $100 million for pediatric patients treated in communities where their stores are located and truly understand the best ways to support kids.”

Since 1991, Speedway has raised more than $100 million for CMN Hospitals, primarily through year-round fundraising in the stores and other initiatives such as an employee payroll deduction program.
