A&W supports MS Society with 'Cruisin' for a Cause Day'

Advertisement

One dollar from every Teen Burger sold across Canada will be donated to the MS Society towards research and patient support. Customers can also purchase $1 paper cutouts, which at the local restaurant, will enter them into a draw for a chance to win a giant, stuffed A&W “Root Bear.” That draw will happen on Friday.

Patrons are also encouraged to bring their classic cars with them, as the day will have a retro theme to it.

Last year the event raised over $700,000 nationwide.

MS is a neurological disease that affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other, resulting in a broad range of symptoms and often progressing to physical and cognitive disability.
