DQ® is Bringing Healing and Happiness to Local Kids

Cool off this summer with a sweet cold treat and donate to TMC for Children while you’re at it! Now through July 25 you can purchase a Miracle Balloon at participating DQ locations to help kids treated at our hospital. Also, make sure to mark your calendar for Miracle Treat Day happening on July 25.

Kids like Cooper. When Cooper was born he spent 24 hours in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Four days after returning home, he had ear infections and pneumonia. Most of his illnesses were due to reflux, which is where vomit gets into the lungs and can cause damage. Thankfully he had surgery on his stomach to stop the reflux, so Cooper was able to go back to being a kid again.

DQ has been a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1984 and has raised nearly $150 million for local children’s hospitals. Their support has brought healing and happiness to kids treated in our hospital in numerous ways — the $15,000+ in donations just from last year have helped provide scholarships for children who need and are unable to afford pediatric therapies, and countless child life activities, games and needs.

Guests visiting Southern Arizona DQ locations supporting TMC for Children can purchase a paper Miracle Balloon to publicly pledge support and receive $2 or $5 in discount coupons good for food or treat on their next visit.

The DQ system’s annual Miracle Balloon campaign caps off with Miracle Treat Day on July 25 where $1 or more from every Blizzard® Treat sold at participating DQ locations will benefit local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Ways to celebrate:

  1. Invite your friends and family to visit a participating DQ location to get your treat on!
  2. Donate to help kids like Cooper
  3. Share your visit on social media using #MiracleTreatDay
