Team Beer donning red shirts for hope

Craig Street Brew Pub has supported the MS Society – Duncan as a sponsor since 2009. Team Beer is the name for the Craig Street Brew Pub MS Walk team that has been participating since 2010. Over the past four years, Team Beer has raised over $5,000 for the MS Society in Duncan! This year Whitney Wilkes is the team captain for Team Beer. Whitney has a few friends who have MS and hopes one day soon a cure will be found. She says it is a cause that truly touches her heart and is happy to be a part of the 2014 Duncan Scotiabank MS Walk to show her support.
