Prince George, B.C. – Once again, the A&Ws in Prince George will be  raising money to to fight Multiple Sclerosis.

The annual “Burgers to Beat MS” campaign  will see all  A&W outlets across the country  raising  funds.   $2 dollars from every teen burger sold will  go to the cause,  and patrons also  have the option  of making a  donation when they pay their bill by  purchasing a paper cutout  for $1, $2 or $5 dollars,  by placing money in  ‘in store’ donation mugs,   or by donating  online  at BurgersToBeatMS.ca.

At the Westgate location in Prince George,  an added bonus,  as the Cruisin Classics Car Club will be on hand  to show  off some of the finest  vintage  vehicles in the community.

One in every 340 Canadians  has  MS,  and dollars raised through the  campaign are  used to fund research,  programs and support for those living with MS.

Over the past 8  years, the A&W  campaign,  has raised  more than $9 million dollars for the cause.

This year,  Canadian Women’s Soccer  team captain Christine Sinclair   is supporting the campaign as this is a matter that is close to her heart.   Sinclair’s mother  has MS.

“I’m excited to be a part of this campaign,” says Sinclair. “I’ve always wanted to do something to make a difference for people, like my mom, who are living with MS, and I feel like this is a great start.”



Cheap A&W… they should be saying all monies from a teen burger will go towards MS..

Hey still smokin how much are you donating and how much of our health care is going to go towards your care when you get sick from smoking.

    First of all.. sorry to disappoint you but I don’t smoke..

    I could look at your handle doneright and ask… did you done right by everyone ??? or you just looking for a fight with someone today

    I’m saying after the two bucks is collected… A&W gets a tax write off for the money they donate. I donate directly now because of this

Does anyone know when the Car Club will be in attendance? Will they still be there at dinner-time?

Amazing how people can complain and find misery out of anything good.
