Leadership

ALS is not an incurable disease; it is an underfunded one. Augie has been a corporate leader for more than three decades and runs Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS in the same way he ran his successful businesses. All donors are treated like investors, and top thought leaders provide leadership and direction.

Fitness Meets Fundraising

In partnership with health and fitness clubs, our global fundraising campaign raises critical funds for ALS research. All money raised by each club is counted toward their sponsorship recognition at the BASH for Augie’s Quest in conjunction with the annual IHRSA International Tradeshow and Convention.
