This year’s Slurpee Day is extra special not only because it marks 7-Eleven’s 97th birthday. The convenience store chain teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to create a special Slurpee cup for the day. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals National Champion, 7-year-old Nolan, designed the cup with illustrations of children sipping on Slurpees.

Nolan was diagnosed with retinoblastoma when he was 3. He had his eye removed and underwent chemotherapy to "make sure it didn't spread to his other eye," his mom, Dr. Courtney Smith, said in a video posted by the hospital in April. He completed treatment by his fourth birthday.

"Today, he thrives with a prosthetic eye and enjoys his regular check-ups at the hospital," Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals posted on Instagram.

Several other fast food restaurants also have meal deals as of late. Sonic just introduced a new $1.99 menu, dubbed the Fun.99 Menu, which includes a snack, entrée and dessert. The options include items like the new queso wraps, quarter-pound double cheeseburger, chili cheese coney, small tots and a 16-ounce shake in 12 different flavors.

Chains like Taco Bell, McDonald’s and Wendy’s each have their own new meal deals for just a few dollars more.

Taco Bell's Luxe Cravings Box includes five fan-favorite items

Taco Bell’s $7 Luxe Cravings Box, which was introduced on June 27, consists of a Chalupa Supreme, Beefy 5-Layer Burrito, Double Stacked Taco, chips with cheese sauce and a medium drink. The bundled deal equates to 55% off compared to if you were to buy the items separately, according to a release.

On June 20, McDonald’s and Wendy’s both, maybe not-so-coincidentally, announced their meal deals.
