Today is National Pancake Day and IHOP is helping you celebrate.

In celebration of National Pancake Day, IHOP restaurants are hooking you up with a free short stack of pancakes. The promotion goes on today from 7 am until 7 pm. The great part is that it is an effort to raise money for Children's Miracle Network and Hurley Children's Hospital.

The closest IHOP restaurants that are participating today are the locations on Miller Road in Flint Township, Tittabawassee Road in Saginaw Township, and E. Pickard Road in Mt. Pleasant.

If that wasn't great enough for you, let's not forget that it is also Fat Tuesday. So wake up and go get your free pancakes at IHOP and support CMN and Hurley, then get ready to keep the sugar rush all day as paczki's rain down from the heavens.

For those of you on a diet, good luck keeping up with it today!
