As thousands of Teen Burgers fly off the grill, classic cars line up in parking lots, and our staff, volunteers, and supporters mobilize to fill A&W restaurants across the country, we would like to take this opportunity to share some exciting news.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Harper dropped by the A&W in Whitehorse, Yukon in the midst of his tour of Northern Canada. His visit was warm, highlighting MS as a cause that is important to him and recognizing the A&W restaurant for their fundraising efforts and for bringing awareness to MS.
You can see a glimpse of the visit on Prime Minister Harper’s Twitter account, as well as on our Twitter feed. Prime Minister Harper’s visit underscores how partnerships like A&W Cruisin’ to End MS play an integral role in helping the MS Society serve Canadians affected by MS.
