Speedway is helping CHKD Change Kids’ Health

Speedway, a part of the 7-Eleven family of brands, is fueling miracles for kids and their families at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD), a member hospital of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, March 17 – 19th. It is important that children’s hospitals have the support they need to help kids receive the best possible care.

This weekend, stop in your local Speedway store and donate to fuel miracles and change kids’ health. Your donation will make a difference in the community by raising funds for CHKD to improve medical treatments, equipment, and facilities along with providing child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays. These funds allow CHKD to address the most challenging health issues of today and prevent and prepare for those to come.

Patients like Autumn, who was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis after her mom noticed her daughter wasn’t acting like her normal self, had lost weight and was constantly thirsty. Today, thanks to help from CHKD, Autumn is back to feeling like her old self. The 5-year old loves to dance and play outside. Although she needs to wear a blood sugar monitoring device and a special insulin pump, neither one seems to faze her.

Speedway has been a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1984 and has raised more than $340,000 locally for Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters. Their support has brought joy and healing to kids treated in the hospital in many ways and they understand children’s hospitals are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. This is why Speedway, their generous customers, vendor partners and associates raise critical funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to foster business owners, professional drivers and leaders of tomorrow.

Thanks to you and Speedway in Hampton Roads for helping change kids’ health to change the future at CHKD.
