Our Quest

Support Our Quest to find a CURE

We know ALS is a disease we can tackle, a problem we can solve. Because ALS is curable; it’s just underfunded. We need your financial support now more than ever – we won’t let the pandemic stop our momentum. Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS is 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.  Today, there is real hope, like never before.

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