What is Augie’s Quest?
Augie’s Quest is determined to find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), which affects some 5,000 Americans each year, and many more abroad. With ALS, a person loses ability to control movement. The brain remains perfectly normal, eventually trapped in an unusable body. Life expectancy is generally five to 10 years from diagnosis.
Since its inception in 2006, Augie’s Quest has raised more than $36 million in donations.
Augie Nieto founded Life Fitness 40 years ago. If you’ve stepped into a gym since then, you’ve seen his work. His quest in that time was to make the world healthier through physical fitness. Now, his quest has expanded.
In 2005, Augie was diagnosed with ALS, and since then, Augie and his family have worked with the Muscular Dystrophy Association to find a cure for this disease.
