Life Fitness Gets Wet For ALS
August 18, 2014 / Category: Our People
Life Fitness has always been a big supporter of Augie’s Questand the fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). So when Augie and Lynne Nieto challenged President Chris Clawson to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, he jumped at the chance to have a bucket of chilly water dumped on him.
Clawson not only accepted but challenged a number of Life Fitness employees to join him in the viral challenge. We had a great turnout from employees, including a Flashdance imitation at the end.
Augie Nieto is the co-founder of Life Fitness and was diagnosed with ALS in 2005. Since he has been diagnosed, he and wife, Lynne, have focused on raising awareness and finding a cure for ALS through Augie’s Quest. Augie’s Quest is an aggressive, cure driven effort focused on finding treatments and cures for ALS.
