People are flipping for pancakes today in Stamford.  As part of National Pancake Day, the International House of Pancakes is serving up free shortstacks in exchange for donations to help support 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide and other local charities.  

One hundred percent of the Stamford location proceeds will benefit the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at the Westchester Medical Center.  

"It's really the hospital to go when your kids really need specialized attention," said Christine Hughes, director of individual giving for the Westchester Medical Center.

"I think that's awesome for the children's hospital," said Marcus McKoy.  

Marcus McKoy is a survivor of cancer and helping children with illnesses is close to his heart.

"It means a lot to me to give back, even if we didn't have free pancakes," said McKoy.

"To really just deep into their hearts and make a donation and help the children at Maria Ferari Children's Hospital, which is actually ten years old this year," said Hughes.  

Their goal is to raise more than $5,000 and nationally, IHOP's goal is to raise 3 million dollars.  IHOP has raised $13 million to date since beginning its national pancake celebration in 2006.
