Local A&W restaurants are being celebrated for their hard work.

Every year, A&W restaurants organize the Burgers to Beat MS campaign. The goal of the campaign is to help those living with multiple sclerosis, and to raise funds for research as well as vital programs and services.

Dryden’s A&W got top marks this year, being the #1 most improved restaurant nationally, when it comes to fundraising efforts. They saw a 491 per cent increase in funds compared to 2016. Dryden also raised the fourth most funds in Canada, raising over $14,000.

Kenora’s A&W restaurant placed third nationally, raising over $15,000. In 2016, Kenora’s restaurant raised over $16,000, and placed second overall. 

One in 340 Canadians live with MS. Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world, and is most commonly diagnosed in young adults, with females being three times more likely to be diagnosed with the disease, compared to males.

In the past eight years, A&W has raised more than $9 million towards MS research.
The funds go towards the MS Society of Canada.
