SAN RAMON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Now through Sept. 30, 24 Hour Fitness members and fans can make a donation online to support Augies Quest and ALS research.

24 Hour Fitness is honored to raise awareness in support of Augies Quest and Augies brave mission to find a cure for ALS, said Carl Liebert, president and chief executive officer, 24 Hour Fitness. Thousands of people are diagnosed with ALS each year and every single donation gets us that much closer to a cure.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrigs disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord in control of voluntary muscle movement.

24 Hour Fitness has been a great partner of Augies Quest for many years, said Nieto. Their generous support, coupled with the funds raised from their online donation drive, will help us improve the lives of those who suffer from ALS.
