IHOP to give away free flapjacks on National Pancake Day

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Tuesday is National Pancake Day across the nation.

In return for a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes, customers are asked to donate money to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The restaurant is giving away free pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The goal is to raise more than $3 million nationwide. Locally, the money will be donated to KU Children's Medical Center.

This year, the pancake restaurant plans to give away 4 million pancakes. If stacked on top of each other, they would stand 16 miles high.

This is the eighth year for the big event.
