Celebrate IHOP’s National Pancake Day and help change kids’ health!


Stretch your stomach and get ready for IHOP National Pancake Day on Tuesday, February 25!

We know you’ve been looking forward to enjoying a FREE stack of IHOP’s buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day to help support our member hospitals across the country. So, be sure to head out with your family, friends and coworkers to mark the day and Flip It Forward For Kids. IHOP plans to serve millions of pancakes on National Pancake Day, all for a good cause!

Any time through February 25, IHOP locations in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico will also be selling Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals icon balloons that include a $5 balloon that provides a $5 coupon good for a future purchase of $10 or more. Guests can also leave a cash contribution or on-check donation to be used in their community through February 25.

All the money raised for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by IHOP during the balloon campaign and National Pancake Day stays local and goes directly to providing life-saving medical treatment and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care to kids in need.

Donations help kids like Vincent. Vinny had a rough start. As a baby, he was often sick and saw several doctors and specialists in an effort to get to the bottom of his health issues, many of which involved respiratory issues such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and breathing issues. At the age 7, Vincent was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis along with a pancreatic insufficiency. Today, even though Vincent has a lot of health challenges, he’s involved in a running club and other sports-related activities at his elementary school. He’s also an accomplished artist and has plans of working for Marvel one day.

After Vincent’s diagnosis, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals helped the family purchase a special vest which vibrates at a high frequency to help break up the mucus in Vincent’s chest. The family also receives funds, directly from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations, which allow them to travel to see a specialist.

So don’t forget to support National Pancake Day on February 25 and get your FREE pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
