Our Quest

To find a cure for ALS in our lifetime. Join our quest to #EndALS.

Our Story

We know ALS is a disease we can tackle, a problem we can solve. Because ALS is curable; it’s just underfunded. 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. With each 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.

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