Speedway Team Celebrates Lurie Children's Patient at Divisional Meeting

Last week, leaders from Speedway’s Lakeshore Division, which includes over 300 Speedway stores throughout Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin, gathered for their annual division meeting and invited a Lurie Childrens’s patient family to join in on the fun. Benjamin Burke, the 2018 Lurie Children’s CMNH Champion and 2018 Lurie Children’s Speedway Miracle Family, attended the meeting with his mom Jennie and little brother Charlie. Themed as USS Lakeshore, the team greeted the family with their very own captain’s hats…

Then, the Speedway Lakeshore team and their vendor partners at Pepsi surprised the Burke family with a special gift…tickets to Saturday’s Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field inside Pepsi’s box suite! As huge Cubs fans, Benjamin, his brothers and parents were thrilled by the opportunity and had a blast at the game. Here’s a look:

On behalf of the Burkes and all the patients and families supported by Speedway’s fundraising efforts for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, THANK YOU!
