Through generous donations from its customers, vendors and employees, Speedway LLC (Speedway) contributed $7,663,759 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2013, boosting the company’s total fundraising to more than $60 million since 1991.
Donations in 2013 were up 18% over the previous year and benefitted 20 member children’s hospitals in nine states.
“It is quite an honor to be part of a company that supports such a great organization,” commented Speedway President Tony Kenney. “We raise the money we do for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals because we have very dedicated employees, and very generous customers and vendor partners that truly care about making a difference in the lives of others. It’s also very rewarding to know that, as Speedway grows, so does our ability to support CMN Hospitals.”
