Buying a Blizzard from Dairy Queen today will raise money to help children being treated at  Akron Children's Hospital.

Thursday is DQ's 13th annual Miracle Treat Day, when $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating locations will be donated to local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

The hospitals raise funds to help save the lives of kids treated at 170 children's hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.

According to a media release, all donations collected on Miracle Treat Day stay in the communities in which they are raised to support pediatric patients and their families in local CMN Hospitals.
