Free Slurpee cups support Children’s Miracle Network

This year, the free small Slurpees come in a special edition cup designed with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

“Designed by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals National Champion, Nolan, the Slurpee cup will aim to bring hope to other pediatric cancer patients and inspire everyone this Slurpee season,” the company said in a news release.

At the age of 3, Nolan was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a cancer that develops in the retina. Nolan’s left eye was surgically removed, and he was fitted for a prosthetic eye, his “superhero eye” as he likes to call it. In August of that year, he started chemotherapy at CHRISTUS Children’s and completed his treatment in time for his fourth birthday, 7-Eleven said on its website.

Customers also can support the charity by making a donation when they come into stores.

The limited edition treat, made with “delicious blue razz sauce ripples and candy bits,” debuted in June and was expected to be available at least through the July Fourth holiday.
