Local and area Dairy Queen restaurants are joining forces to raise money for Medical Center Health System during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals balloon campaign through July 1.

Since 1984, Dairy Queen has raised more than $145 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for pediatric patients, including the hundreds of children treated annually at Medical Center Hospital.

Money is raised when customers contribute $1 or more at checkout.

A CMN balloon is put up in the restaurant in their name.

Dairy locations are: 2761 N. Grandview Ave., 1525 S. Grant Ave., 720 W. University Blvd., and 811 Maple Ave., in Odessa; 802 S. Big Spring St., 3702 W. Wall St. and 706 N. Big Spring St., in Midland; 1007 N. Main St., Andrews; 1009 Lamesa Highway, Big Spring; and 1226 S. Eddy St., Pecos.
