You can chow down on a Teen Burger tomorrow and bite into the fight against multiple sclerosis.

More than 780 A&W restaurants across Canada will host the 5th annual Cruisin' for a Cause Day in support of ending MS during which $1 from every Teen Burger sold will be donated to the MS Society. Customers can also purchase cutouts for $1, $2, and $5 to support the battle against MS.

At the A&W restaurant at 1520 Portage Ave. in Winnipeg from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local MS ambassador Lizelle Mendoza will be on hand to discuss her personal battle with MS. Mendoza, 24, was diagnosed with the disease at age 18 after symptoms began at age 11.

People can also participate by sending an RSVP to the Cruisin' for a Cause Facebook event or tweeting using the hashtag #CruisinForACause as A&W will donate $1 (up to $20,000) for each.

Cruisin' for a Cause has raised more than $3 million to support people living with MS and MS research in Canada.

In Canada, about 100,000 individuals are living with MS, the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in the country. The cause is not known.

The MS Society of Canada offers programs and services for people with MS and their families, and is the highest per-capita funder of MS research in the world.
