Rock ‘n Roll Marathon
ROCK ‘N ROLL HALF MARATHON TEAM | LAS VEGAS, NEVADA | NOVEMBER 11 – 12, 2017
Running a half marathon is a respectable challenge. 13.1 miles is a substantial distance and to complete a half marathon says a lot about a person. But think for a moment about the challenges of living with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Now is your chance to run a half marathon and to raise money for Augie’s Quest by participating in this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon.
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!
Las Vegas is the premiere event in the Rock ‘n’ Roll series and draws people from all over the country. On November 12th, as part of Augie’s Quest the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon is an evening run (or walk), and most of the course travels right down “the Strip”.
Help yourself by running. Help others by raising money. And that way, everyone can Rock ‘n’ Roll for ALS.

Everyone who registers and achieves their minimum personal goal of funds raised will receive an LVAC workout bag
Also, for the first 50 participants (non-cheerleader) who register through our website, when you reach $250 in fundraising LVAC will match with another $250 donation. To be awarded a prize, you must raise a minimum of $500 (Except $5,000 minimum for the Grand Prize).
Prizes are awarded based on most funds raised.
A cheerleader is not participating in the run/walk other than as a fundraiser. So, to get the matching $250 when you hit $250 in donations, you have to be registered as a participant.
