Ace’s ‘Race for a Miracle’ Program to Benefit Children’s Miracle Network

The Ace Hardware Foundation’s “Racing for a Miracle” initiative is again partnering with Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) driver Marcos Ambrose to benefit sick children as the driver races in this weekend in Richmond, Virginia. The initiative is a multi-faceted program developed in collaboration with RPM, STANLEY, DEWALT, the Ace Hardware Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals)—all to benefit children by raising funds for the hospitals that provide their care. If Ambrose and the No. 9 team win, STANLEY will donate $1 million to CMN Hospitals through the Ace Hardware Foundation. If Ambrose and his Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) team finish second or third, STANLEY, through the Ace Hardware Foundation, will donate $500,000 or $250,000 respectively. Regardless of the race’s outcome, the “Racing for a Miracle” program with STANLEY and the Ace Hardware Foundation will once again pledge $100,000 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It’s a total contribution to CMN Hospitals of more than half a million dollars since the program started. As part of the week of events, representatives from the Ace Hardware Foundation, STANLEY, DEWALT, and RPM, including Ambrose and members of the No. 9 STANLEY pit crew, visited Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals member. While at the hospital, representatives spent time with the patients and their family members by giving them an inside look at the STANLEY race team, including pit stop demonstrations. Today, Ambrose will join his teammate Aric Almirola and owner “The King” Richard Petty, along with representatives from STANLEY and DEWALT, to present the $100,000 donation to the Ace Hardware Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Richmond International Speedway in Richmond, Virginia. Included in the check presentation, Ambrose, Almirola and Petty will unveil the paint scheme that will run this weekend on the No. 9 Ford Fusion.
