For a minimum $20 donation, an All Access Pass will be granted for the day allowing access to all classes at every Crunch location. Members and non-members will get the chance to join Crunch's top instructors as they lead classes like AntiGravity Yoga "Wings", Pole Dancing and Bodyweb w/TRX. All Access Passes will be available the day of the event, but participants are encouraged to register in advance for Crunch-a-thon by going to www.crunch.com/en/Centerstage/Crunch-a-thon.aspx. The first 500 registrants will receive an exclusive Crunch-a-thon t-shirt.

Augie's Quest was founded by fitness pioneer and founder of Life Fitness, Augie Nieto. Augie was diagnosed with ALS in March 2005, and since, has made it his personal mission to find a cure for the terminal disease by partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to create Augie's Quest. Augie has also called upon his friends and colleagues in the fitness industry, by creating Clubs for a Cure. Since their inception, Augie's Quest and Clubs for a Cure have raised over $19,000,000 for MDA.

Crunch will be kicking off their fundraising efforts prior to October 17, with in-club initiatives, by displaying the names of members who have donated on the community board, offering new members the opportunity to support Augie's Quest with a donation added on to their initiation fee, and encouraging an additional dollar donation on retail and juice bar purchases.
