We have the perfect excuse for you to ditch your diet on Thursday

The calendar might say it is summertime, but Thursday, Aug. 14, will be a day for a Blizzard.

On that day, Dairy Queen will sponsor its annual Miracle Treat Day to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Restaurants in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia will donate to Children's Miracle Network $1 or more from every Blizzard sold.

All money raised locally will stay in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia to improve children's lives.

Wellmont Health System has served as the region's Children's Miracle Network affiliate for more than 25 years. All money raised in this area is used by Wellmont to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for its pediatric departments, neonatal intensive care unit and emergency departments and to fund community partnerships that advance children's health.
