Our Quest

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.  Today, there is real hope, like never before.

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

Our Founder

Augie’s Quest was co-founded in 2005 by Augie Nieto, the successful fitness industry mogul behind Lifecycle and Life Fitness who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005. A visionary leader dedicated to maintaining muscle strength, fitness and performance, Augie made his career building successful global businesses and driving modern day fitness forward, impacting millions of people. Today, Augie’s inexorable drive to work and achieve remains steadfast, turning his focus and business acumen on ALS, taking on the disease like no other. With Augie’s Quest, Augie and his wife, Lynne, are transforming the way ALS research is funded, approaching it in completely new, unprecedented ways. Most important, we’re seeing real results!
