Irvine, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2009
College Works Painting will welcome Augie Nieto, founder of Augie's Quest and LifeFitness at noon on Monday July 27th at the Embassy Suites in Irvine, in hopes of inspiring the drive towards a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
At a time when many Americans are worrying about the economy, Augie Nieto (Newport Beach resident and founder of LifeFitness and Augie's Quest) is helping one company have a more lasting impact on its employees and customers. Augie has not let his contraction of ALS slow down his positive influence on aspiring entrepreneurs; he uses it as a tool to illustrate what one man can do. Augie Nieto reinvented exercise and changed the face of health and nutrition, by inventing the Life Cycle and founding the company LifeFitness. When he discovered he had ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), he took on the challenge to reinvent medical research. Augie has driven over $20,000,000 to research for a cure of ALS and has changed how medical research is conducted.
Augie's Quest is the focus of College Work Paintings' annual awareness and fundraising project. College Works has partnered with Augie not to just raise money and create awareness, but to deliver a lasting impact on the aspiring entrepreneurs College Works Painting employs across the US.
"Augie Nieto is the kind of entrepreneur the rest of us aspire to. From his start, selling his life cycle out of the back of his VW van, to becoming an industry creator and the leading company in the industry, to how he has turned his incredible success into timeless significance. Augie is the perfect role model for me and for College Works Painting. We are ecstatic to help create the awareness he is looking for and to help raise funds for a cure," said Matthew K Stewart, co-Founder of College Works Painting and Chairman of the Global Board for the Entrepreneurs Organization.
"Augie's example is one our employees should be aware of, by sharing his story with our customers our employees have become deeply aware of what it means to be a significant, not just successful, entrepreneur."
At 12:00 on Monday July 27th at the Embassy Suites in Irvine (Dyer Road and the 55 freeway). Augie will be discussing his story, sharing his passion and collecting the first of many installments of funds generated by College Works Painting across the US. Together, College Works has raised over $40,000 for Augie's quest and shared his story with over 30,000 Americans this year.
