Dairy Queen restaurants  in the West Kootenay and throughout Canada were busy serving blizzards to help out Children’s Hospitals during Miracle Treat Day.

In Castlegar, owner Tim Kenna was happy to help out with such a great cause.

“It’s Miracle Treat Day and money raised from Blizzard sales will be going to support B.C. Children’s Hospital,” he said.

This year, Castlegar has had at least three children from the area who have utilized the services of the busy hospital.

 

Kenna recalled the story of how his brother, when he was four, had severe burns and was placed in the regular hospital in a ward with all older men. “It was pretty traumatic for him. Some of the men died when he was there. It was definitely not kid friendly,” said Kenna. “Fortunately, now we have children’s hospital which work hard to treat the kids as kids.”
