As the holiday season approaches, Thanksgiving feasts and retail flash sales are on everyone’s minds. And while it’s OK to indulge every now and then, once the good china is put away and your Amazon packages are in transit, it’s time to think about giving back. That’s the premise behind Giving Tuesday, the charitable social media movement that is entering its seventh year.
As you’re deciding which nonprofits your family or business will support this year, we ask you to consider two of our fitness industry organizations that could benefit from your donations.
Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS
You’ve likely heard of Augie’s Quest—Life Fitness Co-founder Augie Nieto’s effort focused on finding treatments and cures for ALS. And perhaps you’ve been lucky enough to attend the BASH for Augie's Quest, which is held each year at the IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show. The event helps raise money for the 501(c)3 nonprofit, but the need for donations doesn’t stop there.
