A&W Canada is celebrating the 15th annual Burgers to Beat MS Day with Canadians. All funds will go toward supporting MS Canada and to date, over $19 million has been raised. This year A&W is calling on all Canadians to get involved and show their support to help reach the Burgers to Beat MS fundraising goal of $2 million!
On Thursday, August 17th, Canadians can contribute by visiting their local A&W restaurant and purchasing a Teen Burger. A&W Canada will donate $2 from every Teen Burger sold to MS Canada, to support Canadians living with MS. Today through August 17th, Canadians can contribute to the cause by rounding-up their bill with any purchase or by making an online donation at BurgersToBeatMS.ca.
This year, Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman, TJ Brodie and his wife Amber, have joined the Burgers to Beat MS campaign! Amber was diagnosed with MS in 2016 and this campaign means a lot to them.
Over 90,000 Canadians live with MS making it the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada. Donations will support world-class research programs, including advancing treatment and care, enhancing wellbeing, and understanding and halting disease progression, and prevention.
