Date:11/10/2010

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Halifax Health - Betty Jane France Center for Pediatrics, otherwise known as Speediatrics, celebrated the beginning of a new decade of caring by unveiling a complete renovation of the children's unit during a ceremony held this afternoon in Daytona Beach, Fla.

This year, The NASCAR Foundation and Halifax Health will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Speediatrics. In recognition of this celebration, The NASCAR Foundation presented Speediatrics with a $150,000 donation to the unit. During the event, NASCAR Foundation Chairperson Betty Jane France was joined by NASCAR President and NASCAR Foundation Board Member Mike Helton, NASCAR Foundation Board Member Rusty Wallace, Daytona Beach Mayor Glenn Ritchey and Halifax Health President and CEO Jeff Feasel.

The renovation of the NASCAR-themed unit was accomplished with the help of NASCAR sponsors 3M and Best Buy as well as Vomela Motorsports, Akzo Nobel Paints LLC and K'NEX. The Jimmie Johnson Foundation and Juan and Connie Montoya's Formula Smiles Foundation have also supported this very important cause.

The renovation includes a new nurse's station, as well as new flooring, lighting and furniture for the kids and teen rooms. The Speediatrics decor has been updated with child-friendly decorations on the walls and ceiling featuring custom Speediatrics cartoon characters. Also included is a new donor wall complete with a new video display and the restoration of the iconic signature wall that includes autographs from drivers who have visited the unit over the years.

"So many people have stepped forward to help this important project," France said. "Speediatrics has done some remarkable things in its first 10 years. Now, with this renovation, the unit is set to continue its work in coming years. We are all very grateful for the assistance."

Speediatrics is a 36-bed unit that cares for more than 2,000 children annually, with another 40
