IHOP will use the event to raise money for children battling critical illnesses.

“Every year we look forward to kicking off our IHOP Free Pancake Day — Flip it Forward for Kids campaign because it combines the two things we love most — pancakes and helping our communities,” Stephanie Peterson, company spokeswoman, said in a statement.
