Dairy Queen® Brings Health and Hope to Kids at CHOC Hospital on Miracle Treat Day® July 28

The DQ® brand is bringing hope to kids at CHOC Hospital, a member hospital of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. CHOC wants to ensure the children in our community can lead healthy, fulfilling lives. But they can’t do it alone.

On Thursday, July 28, participating DQ® locations are giving back to positively change the health of children in our community. $1 or more from every Blizzard® Treat sold at participating DQ® locations will benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Through these donations, CHOC can provide treatments and support patients desperately need today, so that they can fulfill their potential for tomorrow.

Patients like Yeira, who lives her best life with the help of her children’s hospital — care she will depend on her entire life. She was born with an extremely rare incurable gastrointestinal disease. Her intestines simply do not work. She receives nutrition through her veins and through a method that bypasses her intestines. This care can cause fluid retention and tissue swelling where Yeira receives daily treatment. Without the treatment, the fluids can dangerously seep into her organs. Already, she has survived several life-threatening experiences, including a heart attack. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals support several programs that give Yeira a world of possibility, including the in-hospital school, playrooms and therapy dogs.

The DQ® brand has been a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for 38 years and has raised more than $92,000 locally for CHOC. Their support has brought joy and hope to kids treated in the hospital in numerous ways — these donations have helped fund the child life program. This allows patients to have a comforting guide through their experience at the hospital and explain procedures in a way that brings kids and their family understanding and comfort.

Children’s hospitals are at the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations and DQ® locations nationwide want to help them foster the business owners, creators and leaders of tomorrow. Thanks to your donation, this will continue to create a ripple effect to change kids’ health to change the future in our community for years to come. Thanks to you and the DQ® locations in Orange County for helping change kids’ health and change the future at CHOC.
