Proceeds from each Blizzard sold at participating locations will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network – a charity that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals across Canada and the U.S.

Last year, Canadians bought a record 600,000 Blizzards and raised more than $2.2 million.

The Oreo Cookie flavour will be the event’s Blizzard of the Day.
