Click on the images to read a few stories to see how we’re bringing healing and happiness to local kids in local Children’s Miracle Network® Member Hospitals.
Music Therapy

Children’s Health Foundation – London, ON

DQ® franchisees, crew members and fans have made a difference through helping fund the music therapy program at Children’s Health Foundation in London, Ontario. This program helps give kids the childhood they deserve, by using melody and rhythm as a natural way for kids and teens to express their emotions when they may not be able to verbalize their feelings, fears or concerns during their hospital stay.


Nolan Quinn
Cornwall, ON

For the past 15 years, DQ franchisee Nolan Quinn has been committed to bringing healing and happiness to local kids. Operating in Cornwall, Ontario and raising funds for the CHEO Foundation, Nolan and his crew go above and beyond to ensure Miracle Treat Day is always a huge fundraising success. In 2018, Nolan presented a cheque for $177,502 on behalf of Dairy Queen® to The CHEO Foundation at a recent telethon, showing just how much Miracle Treat Day can help local kids and their families.

Hamill Family

The Hamill Family
Red Deer, AL

The Hamill family have been DQ franchisees for more than 50 years and during that time, have always had a passion for bringing healing and happiness to local children at Alberta Children’s Hospital. Recently, the Hamill family hit a miraculous milestone of $1 million dollars raised over the past 16 years for their local Children’s Miracle Network Member Hospital. This million-dollar milestone was hit on Miracle Treat Day in 2018, and the Red Deer store was full of fun and celebrations!

New Hospital

Jim Pattison Hospital Foundation – Saskatoon, SK

Through the hard work and dedication of DQ franchisees, crew members and fans in Saskatchewan, the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital is one step closer to opening its doors. The new 176 bed facility will be the first in the province of Saskatchewan with a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit dedicated to maternal and child hospital care. Funds raised through events like Miracle Treat Day are working to support the purchase of specialized equipment pieces and bringing happiness and healing to local kids.

Bringing Healing and Happiness to Local Kids!

Children’s hospitals are magical places where kids can be kids, even during some of the toughest times in their young lives.  Children’s hospitals strive to make the hospital experience as kid-friendly as it can be and at DQ, we think that is pretty incredible.  At DQ we believe in serving happy every day to our Fans and our local children’s hospitals firmly believe that infusing happy into the hospital experience is essential to healing.
