Dairy Queen will be collecting change on Monday, Sept. 22 to benefit the UNM Children's Hospital's Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children by raising funds and awareness for 170 hospitals for children throughout North America. 

Dairy Queen celebrates the 100th year of the ice cream cone.  Throughout the day, all Dairy Queens will be giving their customers a free 5-ounce cone.  Individuals receiving a free cone that day are encouraged to donate change to the local Dairy Queen to support UNM Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network.

In addition, the Dairy Queen on Kathryn and San Mateo will partner with the Highland High School track and field team to help collect change for UNM Children's Hospital and the Children's Miracle Network.

UNM Children's Hospital serves more than 50,000 New Mexico children every year.  The hospital offers the most comprehensive care for children, available in New Mexico, and has the highest level of intensive care for children suffering from an illness or injury.  Pediatric physicians specialize in many areas, including pediatric surgery, neonatology, oncology, cardiology, pulmonary and much more.
