a blizzard of fun at DQ® Miracle Treat Day

sales of Blizzards at local Dairy Queens benefit Dayton Children’s Hospital

Nancy Wilson and James "Frye Guy” Frye stopped by the Dairy Queen® in Kettering to celebrate Miracle Treat Day by enjoying a blizzard and taking some photos with Dayton Children’s Hospital ambassador Collin Cioffi.

This was the twelfth year for the annual Miracle Treat Day when $1 or more from every Blizzard® Treat sold is donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All donations collected on Miracle Treat Day stay in the communities in which they are raised to support local kids. Sales made in Dayton area stores will directly benefit Dayton Children’s Hospital.

These donations make miracles happen for kids like Collin.  Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in the summer before fourth grade, Collin spent three years fighting the cancer with his family and care team at Dayton Children’s Hospital. While it was difficult, he describes it as “fun,” fondly remembering the Nerf gun wars he, the staff and the other patients used to have. Today Collin is back to a regular life routine and proud to be cancer-free. 

Thank you to all who purchased a Blizzard on Miracle Treat Day at Dayton area Dairy Queens to make miracles continue to happen for kids like Collin.
