Help sick kids and their families by grabbing a Blizzard

On Thursday, Aug. 11, Dairy Queen (DQ) fans in Barrie are encouraged to continue the 20-year tradition of making miracles happen for children and their families by visiting their local DQ to celebrate Miracle Treat Day.

Net proceeds from every Blizzard Treat purchased at participating DQ stores in Barrie will be donated to SickKids Foundation, one of 12 Children’s Miracle Network hospital foundations across Canada. What’s raised locally stays local, so every dollar donated from DQ stores will go directly to the local Canadian children’s hospital foundation in each community.

In 2021 alone, local children’s hospitals across Canada delivered care to children through nearly three million in-person and virtual visits. DQ employees, franchisees, volunteers and stakeholders come together throughout the year to help raise funds that allow children’s hospitals to provide the best care possible. Since the partnership began 38 years ago in 1984, DQ has become a top contributor to Children’s Miracle Network, with over $46 million raised to date in Canada alone.
