CNN to report on ALS; Augie Nieto to be profiled

There have been some amazing strides in the fight to find a cure for ALS - also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Many of those accomplishments have been chronicled right here as one of our own, Augie Nieto, has been battling the debilitating affliction for eight years.

This week, July 1-3, CNN will be shedding new light on how families deal with a relative with ALS. Among those being profiled is Nieto, the co-founder of Life Fitness.

One Augie's most recent accomplishments was his workout at the 2013 IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show in Las Vegas in March.
