Our Quest

Augie’s Quest is a nonprofit dedicated to changing the experience of people living with ALS. We raise the funds and awareness urgently needed to advance cutting-edge research, fast-track effective treatments, and ultimately, find a cure for this devastating disease. Because ALS is curable; it’s just underfunded. Our quest is to make sure we find a cure for ALS in our lifetimes. Today we have new hope, we’re closer than ever. Join us in our quest to #endALS.

Our Story

ALS is disease we can tackle; a problem we can solve. Every dollar we raise drives innovative science and research forward, at an accelerated pace. And with every new discovery, we’re making real progress in managing ALS – including one of the most promising drug treatments yet. Today, there is real hope, like never before.

To do so, Augie’s Quest has galvanized thousands to join this fight and confront ALS in an entirely new way – raising nearly $70 million for the cause, and counting. In turn, the global fitness industry, countless businesses, individual donors, influencers, ALS families and friends are absolutely fierce in their commitment to change the way people live with ALS.

With Augie’s Quest, ALS doesn’t stand a fighting chance.
