They say a good deed is its own reward, but a Blizzard is a pretty great reward, too.

On Thursday, August 13, Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day will see all proceeds from every single Blizzard sold donated to the Children’s Miracle Network.

“This year, we’re thrilled to continue our annual Miracle Treat Day tradition alongside our year-long 75th anniversary celebrations,” said Jessica Warren, Senior Marketing Manager of Dairy Queen Canada in a media release. “We’ve had a spectacular year and together with our franchisees, crew and fans, we’re looking forward to making this the best Miracle Treat Day yet.”

Supporting over 170 hospitals across North America, the Children’s Miracle Network raises money for medical research, health care and programs for the public awareness of children’s medical issues. To date, Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day has raised over $100 million in donations.

“The longtime support from DQ and its fans has been incredible,” said John Hartman, Chief Operating Officer of the Children’s Miracle Network Canada in the release. “Thousands of children are treated daily at our member hospitals and the DQ community helps make miracles happen for them every day.”

Former NHL players Darcy Rota and Kirk McLean, along with Vancouver Canuck’s mascot Fin the Whale, will be out and about for the event at the Dairy Queen at 5907 Fraser Street from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and the Dairy Queen at 5630-152 Street in Surrey from 1 to 1:45 p.m. Come on down, grab a Blizzard, help a child, and meet a couple hockey veterans.
