IHOP National Pancake Day is February 25!

Visit Greater Cincinnati IHOP locations on February 25 to celebrate IHOP’s National Pancake Day and help kids treated at Cincinnati Children’s

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

  1. 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.
  2. Invite your friends and family to join you and share that you’re supporting your local children’s hospital on social media using #NATLPancakeDay
  3. Go to for more information and to find the location near you

You might think it’s just a day to get a free short stack of delicious IHOP buttermilk pancakes, but it is a day that makes a BIG difference for kids treated at our hospital.

Kids like Anna.

When Anna was 9, she came home from school complaining that her eye burned. Anna came to Cincinnati Children’s where Anna had a CT scan and learned that she had orbital cellulitis, or an inflammation of tissue behind her eye. For one in ten people with this condition, they face vision loss. Complicating things even more, she also had an abscess on her brow bone that was very close to her brain. Today, Anna is a happy healthy pre-teen thanks to the surgeons at Cincinnati Children’s.

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 National Pancake Day help fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.

To 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 on February 25.

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