Ice cream may be unhealthy for you in large doses, but a Blizzard at Dairy Queen Thursday could help save someone's life.

It's Miracle Treat Day at DQ. If you go to a DQ and get a blizzard, a portion of the proceeds go to the Children's Miracle Network, which in turn helps out the University of Virginia Children's Hospital.

"It's all day long so anytime you come out here and order any blizzard treat, your favorite flavor, any time, they'll donate at least a dollar for every transaction that day,” said Ryan Lightner, UVA Children's Hospital.

The hospital is hoping to raise $25,000 through this year's fundraiser.
