DQ Blizzards assist Children’s Hospital

Dairy Queens across British Columbia are serving up miracles on Thursday to mark the 13th annual Miracle Treat Day

Dairy Queens across British Columbia are serving up miracles on Thursday to mark the 13th annual Miracle Treat Day.

Proceeds from every Blizzard sold on Thursday will be donated to BC Children’s Hospital, one of 14 children’s hospitals across Canada supported by Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). Residents are encouraged to visit their nearest Dairy Queen location to help save and improve the lives of children treated at CMN member hospitals across North America.

“Every day, more than 4,900 children visit a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital for treatment and they need help from each community in the province,” said John Hartman, chief operating officer, Canada, Children’s Miracle Network. “On August 13, we encourage residents to treat themselves to a Blizzard at their local DQ and help make the 13th annual Miracle Treat Day one to remember.”

Since the partnership between Dairy Queen and Children’s Miracle Network began in 1984, Dairy Queen has become a top contributor with $100 million raised to date in support of sick and injured
