A&W’s annual Burgers to Beat MS campaign unites Canadians from coast-to-coast to support the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
Over the past 12 years, this campaign has raised more than $15 million and is the single largest annual corporate fundraiser for the MS Society.
The Burgers to Beat MS campaign will take place Thursday, Aug. 20 with A&W’s first-ever Take Out Burgers to Beat MS Day. On that day, A&W will donate $2 from every Teen Burger sold via A&W mobile ordering, drive-thru, take out and dine-in across Canada to the MS Society.
Until Aug. 20, supporters can participate in this campaign safely by rounding up any purchase at an A&W restaurant, as well as donate from anywhere on BurgersToBeatMS.ca. Canadians can also donate through A&W’s mobile app by adding a donation to any mobile order.
Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, and support of the MS Society’s mission through Burgers to Beat MS will enable even more funds to be directed towards much-needed research.
Funds raised through Burgers to Beat MS will also support programs and advocacy efforts dedicated to helping Canadians living with MS, their friends and family and their communities. With COVID-19, the need for funding life-changing research and support programs remains critical.
