Rooting for A&W's Burgers to Beat MS Day

To call it a Canadian disease is unfair, yet Canada has one of the highest rates of MS globally, with over 90,000 Canadians living with the disease.

Once a year, A&W does something about it.

After two years of a pandemic reduction in fundraising, A&W is happy to announce it’s once again hosting Burgers to Beat MS Day.

For each Teen Burger sold, A&W will donate $2 to the MS Society.

Locally, the restaurant located at a gas station at 3515 Highway 89 near Cookstown, has a host of events planned, including a dunk tank, silent auction, games for kids, face painting and even an appearance by the Root Bear mascot.

Cookstown’s A&W restaurant works hard to fundraise every year – last year, it was part of the top 15 fundraisers across Canada.

This year’s goal to raise $1.5 million nationally will add to the more than $17 million in support A&W has donated to the MS Society over the last 13 years.

Donations continue to help the MS Society fund research, support and services that are fundamental to changing lives. Top Stories
