Who doesn't love ice cream? On Thursday, August 2, you can grab a cool treat AND help support the Children's Miracle Network. It's a win win for everyone!

Thursday is Miracle Treat Day at DQs all across the country. For every blizzard purchased, $1 will be donated to the Children's Miracle Network. You can help the cause by buying a DQ Blizzard from one of Quincy's three locations or from the DQ in Hannibal.

And new in 2018, I'll be lending a hand myself (along with Michael Rose) at the DQ on 12th and Harrison. Michael and I will be battling it out to see who can raise the most money from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Whoever raises the most money between the two of us will win bragging rights, but no matter who wins, it all goes towards a good cause. We'll also be giving away gas cards, Six Flags tickets, and St. Louis Cardinals tickets, so stop by and register!

The north end DQ in Quincy (801 N. 12th Street) is also hosting their annual Bikes and Blizzards event which features a Bike & Trike Show from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. And kids gat even get tatted up (don't worry, they're just temporary).

I take my girls to this event every year, and this year is no exception. They'll be there to cheer me on. I am extremely lucky to have two healthy and active children and I want to show them and teach them that other kids in the world are not as lucky and need a lot of medicine to get better. Thankfully, our Blizzard purchases tomorrow will help support this cause.
