VANCOUVER, BC, Aug.14, 2023 /CNW/ - This Thursday, treat yourself to a tasty Teen Burger and help A&W Canada and MS Canada reach their $2 million fundraising goal to support Canadians living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Helping to ring in the 15th year, Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman, TJ Brodie and his wife Amber are partnering with the Burgers to Beat MS campaign to raise awareness and critical funds for MS Canada. This cause is very close to their hearts as Amber was diagnosed with MS in 2016.
Since its inception, the Burgers to Beat MS campaign has raised more than $19 million to support world-class research programs, including advancing treatment and care, enhancing wellbeing, halting disease progression, and prevention.

Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world. On average, 12 Canadians are diagnosed every day. MS is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord). It is considered an episodic disease meaning that the severity and duration of illness and disability can vary and are often followed by periods of wellness. Most people are diagnosed with MS between the ages of 20 and 49 and the unpredictable effects of the disease will last for the rest of their lives. MS Canada provides information, support and advocacy to people affected by MS, and funds research to find the cause and cure for the disease, bringing us closer to a world free of MS. Please visit mscanada.ca or call 1-800-268-7582 for more information, to get involved, or to support Canadians affected by MS by making a donation.
Susan Senecal, President and CEO of A&W Canada and/or Dr. Pamela Valentine, President and CEO of MS Canada are available for interviews on August 16 and August 17.
