About Augie

Founded by Augie Nieto, Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS is the unwavering force driving breakthroughs in ALS research, defying limitations, and empowering hope for a future without this devastating disease. The Alaska Club has supported Augie’s Quest from its beginning, and we proudly continue to do so.



The Alaska Club has a goal of raising $30,000. The Alaska Club and Janet are covering all expenses for her to participate in the marathon.  Any money acquired through sponsorships and fundraising events will go directly to ALS research.


Janet is motivated not only by her love of running, but also because every dollar she raises will go directly to ALS research. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure. Janet's brother Leo was diagnosed when he was 52 years old and died only a few years later.


ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, attacks cells in the brain and spinal cord used to keep our muscles moving. There is only one medicine currently used to treat ALS and it only extends survival for a few months. A cure for this devastating disease that effects 1 in 400 people, is desperately needed.


How To Help

Over the next six months, The Alaska Club will be offering fundraising opportunities, including some fun events to support Janet’s cause. All proceeds will go towards ALS research. Together we can raise hope and money to help find a cure.
