Dairy Queen Brings Health and Hope to Kids at CHKD on Miracle Treat Day – July 28

The DQ brand is bringing hope to kids at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia, a member hospital of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. CHKD 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 from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating DQ locations will benefit CHKD. Through these donations, CHKD can provide treatments and support patients desperately need today, so that they can fulfill their potential for tomorrow.

The DQ brand has been a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for 38 years and has raised more than $1,680,000 locally for CHKD.

Recently, Mid Atlantic Dairy Queen, a collection of 14 local Dairy Queen locations, pledged $5 million to support CHKD’s Lighting the Way campaign for mental health. Proceeds from Miracle Treat Day, customers rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar, coin canister donations and DQ employee contributions will all go toward the $5 million pledge.

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 support, 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 the DQ locations in Hampton Roads for helping to change kids’ health and change the future at CHKD.
