Jefferson hit by a 'blizzard' for Miracle Treat Day

What's better than a nice, cold Dairy Queen Blizzard Treat on a hot day?  How about enjoying that Blizzard while also helping a worthy cause?!

July 30th is Miracle Treat Day, during which participating Dairy Queen locations raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

A dollar or more from every Blizzard Treat purchase will go to CMNH, helping kids in need. 

This is a special Miracle Treat Day -- it's the 10th annual, and so far more than $100 million has been raised to support children across North America.
The Jefferson Dairy Queen always goes all out for Miracle Treat Day, with activities planned including a Blizzard eating contest involving local police and fire workers. One of the judges included Stacy Halstead.

Halstead's son, Tripp, suffered severe brain injuries in October of 2012 when a tree limb fell on him outside his Winder day care center. Tripp spent months at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Read more on Tripp here

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken heard "eating contest" -- and you know what happened -- he went running there to check it out!
