Miracle Treat Day Is August 2nd To Help Kids
On Miracle Treat Day, $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating DQ locations will be donated to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide care to over 10 million children each year. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open, and DQ franchisees are helping them stay that way.
Heather Norris is from this area and it helps her with her wheelchair, seeing a doctor, getting treatment, and so much more.
According to MSN.com, last year, people drank a whole lot of Blizzards - meaning a lot of money was raised. Between DQs across the U.S. and Canada, $4 million was contributed on Miracle Treat Day last year. But this isn't Dairy Queen's only campaign: The chain has teamed up with the children's hospital group on other local initiatives and the Miracle Balloon campaign, raising a total of more than $135 million since 1984.
Kids can get care in Duluth or they go to St. Paul to a Gillette Children's Hospital where they get Physical Therapy, or sometimes it might be to get a custom-made chair, arm, skull cap, or leg. There's even a special room that evaluates the way they walk to help design orthotics or other things to help kids live a normal life.
