ROCKFORD - A tasty fundraiser helps kick start the morning in the stateline.

Tuesday was National Pancake Day at IHOP Restaurants. Guests sat down to a free short stack of flapjacks in exchange for a voluntary donation to Children's Memorial Hospital.

IHOP has been heading up this fundraiser for 9 years.

Pancake Day is a tradition dating back centries. It was started by the English in preparation for fasting during Lent.
