This Thursday grab a burger at A&W and support Cruisin’ to End MS

One dollar from every Teen Burger® and Double Teen Burger® sold A&W Thursday, Aug. 27, will support the work of the MS Society

To the editor;

Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis in the world – four times a greater risk than the U.S., 13 times a greater risk than Argentina and 27 times a greater risk than Pakistan.

Not only do 1 in 280 Canadians live with MS, but it affects the families and loved ones who come together to manage the realities of the disease.

For the seventh year, A&W Food Services of Canada Inc. celebrates its annual Cruisin’ to End MS to benefit and raise awareness for Canadians living with MS. One dollar from every Teen Burger® and Double Teen Burger® sold across the country this Thursday, Aug. 27, will support the work of the MS Society of Canada.

More than 800 A&W restaurants across the country – including the Barriere location – will host Cruisin’ to End MS events, many featuring great food, music, games, classic car and hot rod shows, and other activities.

In addition to buying a Teen Burger® or and Double Teen Burger®, supporters can also purchase $1, $2 or $5 paper cutouts, give through in-store donation mugs or make online donations at; all of which goes towards supporting activities that help people impacted by MS.

The MS Society of Canada, Kamloops and Area Chapter, which serves Barriere and the surrounding area, invites members of the community to join us for Cruisin’ to End MS on August 27.

The more participants we have, the more money can be raised to end MS.
