ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a progressive motor neuron disease that robs people of the ability to move. But you can make a move to help — join the global Together We Dance™ to Cure ALS movement. 75% of ticket fees will be donated to Augie's Quest®, a nonprofit research initiative dedicated to finding treatments and cures for ALS.
Last year's campaign to raise funds for Augie's Quest® made a big difference. Total funds from Augie's Quest® allowed scientists at the ALS Therapy Development Institute to screen more than 100 molecules to see if they affected the progression of the disease. This led to a Phase II clinical trial for a cure to the disease. Because of you, last year's campaign was a huge success — and with your help, we can continue movin' to find a cure.
