Bring Health & Hope to Kids with Dairy Queen June 1-July 27!

Throughout the year, Dairy Queen fans demonstrate commitment to creating memorable moments and making a difference in how Dayton Children’s a member hospital of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, cares for kids. Dairy Queen doesn’t just have food and treats that put a smile on your face–DQ creates meaningful moments for kids and families in our community.

Participating Dairy Queen locations invite you June 1-July 27 to buy a balloon and provide needed funds to help bring health and hope for kids treated in the Dayton area.

Children are at the center of everything we do and building a strong foundation for their tomorrow needs to start today. Dayton Children’s sees what the future can be, and with support from you and Dairy Queen, we can ensure that it becomes a reality.

Your donations help support the health of kids like Declan.

When Declan’s mom found out her six-year-old son would be having surgery, she was nervous. Surgery is a stressful and scary time for any child but can be especially stressful for a child with autism. But the child life specialists at Dayton Children’s set out to ensure Declan was as comfortable as possible by creating a sensory friendly room specialized to his needs. Declan was able to see projections of fish on the wall, a fiberoptic bubble machine, and markers to color on the bed. He was even allowed to decorate his own mask with stickers. When it came time for his surgery, Declan wasn’t scared!

Support from partners like Dairy Queen help kids like Declan receive the specialized care services that keep them calm and comfortable during stressful situations.

Stop at a participating Dairy Queen and give today so Dayton Children’s can continue to ensure our children lead healthy, fulfilling lives, while also bringing joy and happiness tomorrow.

When we change kids’ health, we change the future – for all of us.
