About Augie’s Quest
The purpose of Augie’s Quest has always been to fund research and drug development aimed at ending ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease. Since 2007, Augie’s Quest has raised more than $44 million in support of finding effective ALS treatments- making it the largest individual fundraising program for ALS. All funds raised by Augie’s Quest benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute (http://www.ALS.net), the world’s first and largest nonprofit biotech focused 100 percent on ALS research. 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, such as the Clubs for the Quest, as well as a hugely innovative joint-fundraising initiative called the ClubCorp Charity Classic which benefits Augie's Quest and other local charities chosen by that networks members directly.
