3. Make a donation directly to Augie's Quest >
The Alaska Club at Augie’s Quest fundraiser with Augie and Lynne Nieto. We raised $30,000 thanks to support from Stillpoint Lodge, Alaska Airlines, Alyeska Resort & Hotel, Seven Glaciers Restaurant, Alpine Air, Catch A Lot Charters and Land’s End Resort. Because of you, we’re closer to a cure! Thank you.
The Alaska Club has made a commitment to raise $20,000 for ALS through our partnership with Augie’s Quest for continued research to find a cure!
Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure. ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, attacks certain cells in the brain and spinal cord needed to keep our muscles moving. Currently, there is only a single medicine for specifically treating ALS called Riluzole. The drug only extends survival by about 2 to 3 months. This urgent unmet medical need for effective treatments to combat this devastating disease is the basis for the research and drug development effort at the nonprofit biotech organization, ALS Therapy Development Institute.
The Alaska Club, along with Augie’s Quest, is committed to raising funds to find a cure and we encourage you to be part of this important cause.
