About Augie’s Quest
Augie’s Quest is a nonprofit focused on funding research and drug development aimed at ending ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Augie’s Quest was founded by Augie Nieto, founder and retired chief executive of Life Fitness and the chairman of Octane Fitness. In 2005, Nieto was diagnosed with ALS and has since worked to find a cure for the disease through fundraising and research efforts. Support comes from a huge network of national events and promotions, including the BASH for Augie’s Quest, Tradition of Hope Gala and widely successful campaigns within the very generous fitness industry.
