The numbers tell the story about the impact Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN Hospitals) has on children in the U.S. and Canada. One in 10 children is treated at CMN Hospitals each year and the hospitals provide 32 million treatments annually.
To fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care to help save and improve the lives of those children, participating DQ Grill & Chill® and Dairy Queen® locations throughout the U.S. will celebrate the 11th Annual DQ® Miracle Treat Day on Thursday, July 28.
During Miracle Treat Day, $1 or more from every Blizzard® Treat sold at participating locations will be donated to CMN Hospitals, which raises funds and awareness for more than 150 children’s hospitals across the U.S. All funds stay in local communities.
Last year, Dairy Queen operators across the U.S. and Canada raised more than $5 million on Miracle Treat Day for their local CMN Hospitals. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $115 million for the charity through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.
In addition, Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell, the national goodwill ambassador for CMN Hospitals, will serve as this year’s honorary spokesperson for DQ Miracle Treat Day. Miss America titleholders have been involved with CMN Hospitals by visiting member hospitals and helping with fundraising activities since 1989.
The featured Miracle Treat Day Blizzard Treat of the Day is Oreo®, the most popular Blizzard Treat to date. The Blizzard of the Month for July in the U.S. is the new Royal Rocky Road. All other Blizzard flavors are also available that day.
