2012 Augie’s Quest ALS Courage Award Recipient
LAUREN WITSENBURG, VP of Operations at Jenny Craig, lost her battle with ALS in January 2013 after an extremely aggressive case of ALS. She was a strong and courageous woman who inspired others to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. Lauren’s drive to succeed was contagious, which made her a natural leader. Physical activity was a major part of her very active lifestyle, which made ALS even more difficult to accept as her muscles progressively stopped working.
Lauren’s husband and son joined her in October 2012 when she received the Courage Award at the Tradition of Hope Gala for Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS. Lauren remains an inspiration to remind us all that we can change the world. Jenny Craig has coordinated a campaign to support ALS research in her honor.
