It’s summer time and with the recent heat waves we have experienced it’s nice to sit down with a cold treat.
Today (August 9th) is Miracle treat day – Canadian Dairy Queen locations are doing something special by donating the net proceeds to the Children’s Miracle Network from every Dairy Queen Blizzard that is sold.
The youngest multi-organ transplant recipient in the world resides in Northumberland. Sarah Marshall is encouraging local residents to take part in Miracle Treat Day. She explains where the funds raised goes – adding it helped her when she needed it most.
Sarah was born in 1997 and was diagnosed shortly after her birth with a rare congenital form of intestinal obstruction.
She says the money raised helped her when she was in hospital and now it’s time to give back – which she’s been doing for years now at the Cobourg Dairy Queen.
The Children’s Miracle Network provides care to over 10 million children each year.
For the last 15 years this program has raised well over 135 million dollars.
