August 16th is the 10th Annual #BurgersToBeatMS Day, with the MS Society of Canada and A&W Canada looking to take a serious bite out of Multiple Sclerosis.
Multiple Sclerosis is a neurolgical disease that affects the central nervous system. Many Canadians are either affected with this disease, or no someone who has it. In fact, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with the disease every day, on average, and it is the highest rate of any country in the world. For me, this number is astounding, and it’s great that the MS Society of Canada, along with A&W Canada, are able to spread awareness about this ‘invisble’-disease.
On August 16th, A&W Canada will donate $2 from every Teen Burger that is sold, and all of the proceeds will go directly towards MS research, community programs, and advocacy for those with MS. You can also support by rounding up your bill at the A&W register, purchasing limited-edition stickers for $2, and also by placing donations in their signature mugs at the counteer. More than 930 A&W restaurants across Canada will host Burgers to Beat MS Day activities, with many featuring the Great A&W Root Bear, A&W Root Beer floats, music, games and other fun activities.

I had a chance to sit down with Mike Atkinson, A&W Regional VP of Eastern Canada, and Dr. Karen Lee, of the MS Society of Canada, to discuss #BurgersToBeatMS Day, and how Canadian soccer legend, Christine Sinclair, got involved.
