Buy a Blizzard at Participating Dairy Queen Locations to Support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Released July 21, 2017

Miracle Treat Day provides a great opportunity to beat the heat by buying a Blizzard from participating Dairy Queen restaurants and making a profound difference in the lives of children in the region.

For every Blizzard sold Thursday, July 27, Dairy Queen will provide at least $1 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Wellmont Health System has served as the area’s Children’s Miracle Network affiliate for 30 years.

All money raised from Miracle Treat Day stays local. Wellmont uses the money from this event and other fundraisers to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for its pediatrics departments, neonatal intensive care unit, birthing units and emergency departments and to fund community partnerships that advance children’s health.

“Partnerships with members of our community and with Children’s Miracle Network corporate sponsors such as Dairy Queen have enabled us to improve the lives of children we serve,” said Todd Norris, Wellmont’s senior vice president for system advancement and Wellmont Foundation’s president. “Some of these children face potentially life-threatening illnesses, and the support we receive makes it possible for us to deliver high-quality care. We greatly appreciate the generosity.”
