For one day each year, 100% of the proceeds from Blizzard sales at Dairy Queen go to a great cause: The Children’s Miracle Network. Miracle Treat Day has raised over $91 million dollars in funds since it began in 1984. This year, Miracle Treat Day is Thursday, July 26th.

To celebrate this fantastic annual fundraiser, the front lawn of Sick Kids (555 University Ave.) will be transformed into a winter wonderland on Wednesday, July 25th, the day before Miracle Treat Day. Patients and supporters will witness a midsummer blizzard (IT’S LIKE WE LIVE IN WINNIPEG), and that’s not all. They’ll be giving away free Blizzards (the ice cream kind) to the first 5, 000 takers. Stop by between 12 pm and 2 pm to celebrate, and spread the word to support by Tweeting about #MiracleTreatDay and @DQCanada.

On the 26th, why not treat your whole office to Blizzards, and donate to a great cause?
