A local Ford dealership is getting behind the cause to raise up to $6,000 for the MS Society of Canada.

On Saturday, June 11, Parkside Ford Lincoln will donate $20 to MS Walk Team, Mass Synergy, for every person who test drives a Ford vehicle.

The funds will support the many services the MS Society of Canada provides for people directly affected by Multiple Sclerosis as well as support the on-going research that will help end this horrible disease.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 2000 Main Street and also include a fundraising BBQ.

Participants in Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School and Community program must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license.
