Thank you to all of you who came out to Augie’s Quest in San Francisco last month!!
Augie’s Extended Family —One man’s journey to find a cure for ALS has become a special quest for the Zumba family. On March 17, more than 1,400 people attended the Zumbathon® charity event at the IHRSA Convention and Trade Show in San Francisco, California, to benefit MDA’s Augie’s Quest. More than $210,000 was donated by the Zumba community. Those who attended this unforgettable event witnessed U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin, MD, and internationally recognized Pamela Peeke, MD, dancing on stage with Beto. Life Fitness founder Augie Nieto, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005, also joined the Zumba family on stage with his wife. Click here to see the pictures. If you didn’t get to participate in an Augie’s Quest Zumbathon charity event this year, there will be more opportunities. The Home Office is working on a campaign for 2012 to continue our support and help beat ALS!
