For the ninth year, A&W Canada hosts its annual Burgers to Beat MS event in support of Canadians living with multiple sclerosis at nearly 900 restaurants across the country. Two dollars from each teen burger sold will go towards the MS Society of Canada on Thursday, August 24.
A Party in the Parking Lot will happen in celebration of this campaign. Drumheller can get in on the Car and Bike Show ‘n’ Shine, Root beer gardens, games and activities, and even a root beer chugging contest. A&W has also created a special Snapchat filter that will be available to all Canadians on Burgers to Beat MS day.
Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis in the world. MS is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system comprising the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. It is one of the most common neurological diseases affecting young adults in Canada.
To date, A&W and the MS Society have raised more than $9 million through Burgers to Beat MS. Money raised from this event will help the MS Society fund vital MS research, government advocacy, financial support and wellness programs that empower Canadians impacted by the disease.
