IHOP Free Pancake Day is March 12th! Mark Your Calendars Today!


Visit participating IHOP locations in Northwest, Ohio on March 12th to celebrate Free Pancake Day and help kids treated at Mercy Health Children’s Hospital.

It’s easy to celebrate IHOP National Pancake Day! Here’s how:

  1. Visit a participating IHOP location on March 12th and donate to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in exchange for a free short-stack of pancakes.
  2. Invite your friends and family to join you and share that you’re supporting your local children’s hospital on social media using #FreePancakeDay

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 Regan,

Regan receives intravenous immunoglobulin treatment every four weeks at Mercy Health — Children’s Hospital. Due to her multiple diagnoses, her heart, kidney and liver function must be monitored regularly. Getting her ulcerative colitis under control is a challenge that lies ahead for her and her family. Regan competes on the Inspire Dance Team and loves being on stage performing!

Why you should 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 Free Pancake Day help fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.

Thanks to IHOP for supporting our hospital and to all of your for enjoying free pancakes and helping kids!
