    Why?:     Multiple Sclerosis is the most common neurological disease in
              young adults across Canada. Canada has one of the highest
              incidence rates of multiple sclerosis in the world - research
              and support for people with MS and their families is critical.

              Cruisin' for a Cause creates an opportunity for Canadian baby
              boomers who grew up enjoying warm summer evenings in their cars
              at A&W drive-ins - often with the radio blaring and trays of
              Teen Burgers, onion rings and icy cold A&W Root Beer delivered
              by car hops - to revisit those fond memories and support the
              Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
