RENO — On Thursday, communities throughout the United States and Canada will make miracles for children during the sixth annual Miracle Treat Day.

Throughout the day, $1 or more from every Blizzard treat sold at participating Dairy Queen (DQ) restaurants will be donated in support of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (CMNH) at Renown Regional Medical Center.

Since 1984. DQ has raised $86 million to help save and improve the lives of children. Last year on Miracle Treat Day, DQ locations across the United States and Canada raised nearly $5 million for 170 children’s hospitals. All money raised at local DQ restaurants will stay in the Truckee Meadows community to help fund state-of-the-art equipment and provide support for pediatric services and education programs at Renown Children’s Hospital.

Participating restaurants in the area include:

• 1501 Prater Way, Sparks

• 10390 North McCarran Blvd., Reno

• 3198 US Highway 50 East, Carson City

• 1750 US Highway 395, Minden

• 5645 Meadowood Circle, Reno

The mission of CMNH is to generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals, such as Renown Children’s Hospital. In northern Nevada, Renown Children’s Hospital is the only hospital associated with CMNH.
