August 26, 2022: Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS granted $159,122 to the ALS Therapy Development Institute today. Special thanks to Scott Cameron, recipient of the Phil Green award and chairman of the Cure ALS Golf Classic, for playing a key role in raising these research funds, which are granted in his honor. Scott is a member of the Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS Leadership Council and works tirelessly to find treatments and a cure in honor of his late father, Sandy, who had ALS.
“Thank you to Scott Cameron for sharing our Quest to find a cure for ALS, and his continued leadership,” said Augie Nieto, Chairman of Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS. “With warriors like Scott and his family, we’re closer than ever to a cure. We’re proud to provide these funds to ALS TDI in honor of the great volunteer work being done by Scott Cameron ,Phil Green and the dedicated event committee.”
These critical funds support the Augie’s Quest Translational Research Center at ALS TDI which was established to better understand the mechanisms of how amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) affects the body and use the knowledge to develop new, more effective treatments for the disease. These funds are part of a larger $5.8 million grant from Augie’s Quest to ALS TDI through 2024 that was established to fund the discovery of new candidate drugs to slow, stop, or even reverse ALS disease progression.
The Cure ALS Golf Classic has raised more than $1 million for ALS research.
