One of the best ways to  keep cool on a hot August day - a blizzard of course! Cooling down while helping local kids - even better!

We had Gillette patient Michael Ruud and his father Mike on the show, along with Becky Holst from Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare. They told us what to expect for today's event.

Thursday, August 14 is Miracle Treat Day at participating Dairy Queen locations throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin. 

$1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold will be donated to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a national organization committed to raising awareness and funds for children's hospitals.

In Minnesota and western Wisconsin, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising benefits Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare.
