On Miracle Treat Day, $1 from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating DQ locations will be donated to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Which stores are participating? The Dairy Queen stores in Cloquet, Superior, Hermantown, and The Duluth one on Miller Trunk, but the Canal Park and Denfeld locations are closed for the year.

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.

According to the DQ website, Each year, the DQ system donates millions to local children's hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. All contributions are made to local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals like our clinic in Duluth or the Gillette Children's Hospital in Minneapolis to directly help kids in your community.

Heather Norris is from this area and it helps her with her wheelchair, seeing a doctor, getting treatment, and so much more. Don't forget, Miracle Treat Day is October 28th.

DQ has raised millions of dollars over the years, if you would like to donate directly you can do so on the DQ Miracle Treat Day website. Dairy Queen's chain has teamed up with the children's hospital group on other local initiatives and the Miracle Balloon campaign, raising millions that way too.

Kids can get care with things like 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 so that things can be made to help kids to walk better or heal their back, to help design orthotics or other things to help kids live a normal life.
