Record-Breaking Blizzard Run Total

Enjoy this video recap of the 3rd annual Dairy Queen Blizzard Run 5K in York, Pennsylvania on August 25, 2018. In addition to the race, participants enjoyed a kids fun run, family activities and a free Blizzard Treat at the finish line. Miracle Child Madeline helped to start the race. She was critically injured after her babysitter accidentally forgot to put her in the car and ran her over. In addition to internal injuries, she had to relearn to walk again. Today, she’s healthy and happy. Her mom, Ashley,  told the crowd of 900+ runners and walkers that she remembered seeing “funded by Children’s Miracle Network” on pieces of equipment that Maddie used in the hospital.

Thank you to DQ Grill & Chill on Roosevelt Avenue in York for planning this amazing event and to all of the event sponsors, participants and volunteers. The Blizzard Run a record $39,000 to support life-saving equipment, family-centered programs and transformative research at Penn State Children’s Hospital.  #BlizzardRun
