CHICAGO, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, Bally Total Fitness members raised over $230,000 for Augie's Quest, the fast-track research arm of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). As one of the leading fundraising donors in 2008, Bally is dedicated to beating the previous goal by reaching $300,000 in donations this year.

Whether you're currently a Bally member or interested in free access to a health club, simply donate in a Bally location or online to help the fight against ALS and receive personal health benefits.
