children's miracle network hospitals

During the month of May, a portion of all fountain or frozen beverages sold at Speedway will go to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital! They raise funds for 170 children's hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it's needed the most.

I for one will be sure to stop in and get one....I LOVE frozen cokes. Slurpees remind me of my dad's side of the family. We always used to walk down to 7eleven and get them! 

Also, remember that a little change can make a BIG difference! See a change canister near the checkout at your local Speedway? Drop in your spare change and join Speedway in supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to help save and improve the lives of the children in your community. The money you donate goes to a hospital near you to help children in need. Those funds touch the lives of 17 million children each year.

See, saving the world isn't hard. All you have to do is drink a fountain drink from Speedway. EASY!

ALSO, just a small update....I got an email from Safe Haven Ministries this week that said there were actually more than 200 people who chose to run the River Bank Run for them. And between all of those people, we raised $28,000 which is the most they have EVER gotten from the race! It's also the amount they usually budget for a full year of children's trauma-intervention programming PLUS what they need for meals and personal care items for more than 60 families in the shelter. How amazing! Thank YOU for helping Safe Haven get there!

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

Be the change. Make the difference.
