    Why?:     Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological disease of
              young adults in 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, hand-made onion rings and icy cold mugs of A&W
              Root Beer delivered by car hops - to revisit those fond
              memories and support the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
