Help VIDA Fitness find a cure for ALS
Team-up with VIDA Fitness during May to raise awareness and work towards finding a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Many of you may also be familiar with the world famous Ice Bucket Challenge.
We’re hosting a rooftop Cocktail Party and Silent Auction at The Penthouse Pool and Lounge at The Yards at 1212 4th St SE, Washington, DC 20003. Please join us on Friday, May 29th from 7pm to 12 Midnight and purchase your tickets today at http://bit.ly/1Rm4fAw. You may also make a general donation using this link if you’d like to support this amazing cause, but are unable to attend the event. We have some wonderful items for our Silent Auction that you won’t want to miss!
Tickets are only $25 and all proceeds from ticket sales, cash bar, and the Silent Auction will go directly to Augie’s Quest, a non-profit ALS research initiative dedicated to finding a cure for the disease. The ticket price includes food from The Penthouse Pool and Lounge as well as participating restaurants in the neighborhood. We also have 3 remaining sponsorships available for $1000 that includes a cabana for your group along with bottle service and 10 tickets to the event.
We’re also looking for personal stories from our members and other DC residents that have been affected by ALS. Please contact us if you or someone you know has a personal connection to this aggressive disease.
Augie’s Quest and ALS TDI
The purpose of Augie’s Quest has always been to fund research and drug development aimed at ending ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease. Since 2007, Augie’s Quest has raised over $44 million in support of finding effective ALS treatments- making it the largest individual fundraising program for ALS!
All funds raised by Augie’s Quest benefit ALS TDI, the world’s largest ALS-dedicated drug development organization. Support comes from a huge network of national events and promotions, including the BASH for Augie’s Quest, Tradition of Hope Gala and widely successful campaigns within the very generous fitness industry, such as the Clubs for the Quest, as well as a hugely innovative joint-fundraising initiative called the ClubCorp Charity Classic which benefits Augie’s Quest and other local charities chosen by that networks members directly.
The ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) is the world’s leader in ALS research. Our mission has precise focus: to discover and develop effective treatments to end ALS. As a nonprofit biotech, ALS TDI combines the ambition and strategy of a pharmaceutical company with the dedicated spirit of a 501c3, with incredible flexibility to expedite promising potential treatments from lab bench to people living with the disease today. Founded by a patient and his family, and featuring PALS and their loved ones in the highest leadership roles, a sense of urgency and perseverance drives every decision made at the Cambridge, MA-based institute.
