Jacob, Starla, Molly, Nathan and Michael are just a few of the children across the country with a remarkable medical story to tell thanks to the treatment they received at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN Hospitals). Every minute, 62 children enter a CMN Hospital for treatment.

To raise funds 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 10th Annual DQ® Miracle Treat Day on Thursday, July 30. 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 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. All funds stay in local communities.

Last year, Dairy Queen operators across the U.S. and Canada raised nearly $5 million on Miracle Treat Day for CMN Hospitals. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $100 million for the charity through fundraising efforts including 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 August in the U.S. is ROLO® Minis, featuring creamy vanilla soft serve blended with ROLO Minis and swirls of smooth caramel.
