IHOP National Pancake Day is February 25! Eat pancakes, help kids, here’s how:

Visit participating IHOP locations on February 25 to celebrate IHOP’s National Pancake Day and help kids treated at Ascension Via Christi.

It’s easy to celebrate IHOP National Pancake Day! Here’s how:
Visit a participating IHOP location on February 25 and donate to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in exchange for a free short stack of pancakes.
Invite your friends and family to join you and share that you’re supporting your local children’s hospital on social media using #NATLPancakeDay

You might think it’s just a day to get a free short stack of delicious IHOP buttermilk pancakes, but it actually is a day that makes a BIG difference for kids treated at our hospital. Kids like
Alaina. Alaina has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and has had a hemispherectomy, she is blind on her right side and also has partial paralysis on her right side. Through all of this, she shines like a star! Going through life day to day, it can be challenging not being able to use her right side. As a CMN Miracle Kid, we are proud to be there for Alaina and her family. Have you seen a device like the one on her leg? This device, called a WalkAide, helps lift her leg up with each step she takes. Now she doesn’t need to wear a stiff and uncomfortable brace to improve her mobility.


Why should you help?
Did you know that 62 kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital every minute? That’s more than 10 million kids every year. Donations raised at IHOP on National Pancake Day help fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Programs like our prescription and equipment assistance program is available for all families with a child being treated at Ascension Via Christi’s hospitals or clinics.

As a thank you for helping kids on National Pancake Day, guests can enter to win pancakes for life or 250,000 other prizes by scanning the QR code on the table tent when you are in the restaurant on February 25.

Thanks to IHOP for supporting our hospital and to YOU for enjoying free pancakes and helping Kansas kids!
