Speedway Miracle Tournament Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Speedway’s mission for CMN Hospitals fundraising is simple and has not changed over the past 30 years – to raise as much funds as possible through our in-store donation programs and through the Speedway Miracle Tournament. These funds help children’s hospitals advance pediatric healthcare by providing critical lifesaving equipment and much needed resources to help treat sick and injured kids in the communities Speedway serves. The Speedway Miracle Tournament continues to serve as the centerpiece of Speedway’s fundraising efforts for CMN Hospitals, and was hosted last month in Dayton, Ohio.

The funds Speedway raises support 81 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the U.S., including Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Local patient champion, Gracie Miehlke, was selected to represent Lurie Children’s at this year’s 30th anniversary of the Speedway Miracle Tournament. Gracie and family were able to help support fundraising activities on the golf course, thank and interact with participants and vendors, and had an incredible experience as one of the featured families.

Gracie’s family was sponsored by longtime Miracle Vendor Sponsors, WT Group & Pratum Construction Services. This year marked their 15th year as a vendor sponsor of the tournament.

Lynn Kellogg, pictured below, is a General Manager at a Speedway in La Porte, IN. She was selected as one of the 11 general managers to attend and volunteer at this year’s event. Lynn is a dedicated champion at her location, raising funds to benefit Lurie Children’s. In 2019, her location raised over $11,000.

Lurie Children’s would like to thank all participants, volunteers, Speedway teams and sponsors, especially WT Group & Pratum Construction Services, who made this year’s Speedway Miracle Tournament possible! Congratulations on 30 years of making a difference for patients like Gracie!
