Best Pace Scenario

GREAT NEWS! My brother Pete Leahy and I have decided to team up and run together! We are "Best Pace Scenario." Pun by Pete in honor of our Dad's punny sense of humor!

We are honored to have the opportunity to join Team Fox and run the New York City Marathon on November 3, 2019. Becoming a part of this community through running and raising funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease (PD) is something we are super excited about.

Our goal is $6,400, and we are well on our way. I'd love to see us crush $10,000! That would be AMAZING!

Did you know? When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF’s programmatic efforts. That's ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s, but many experts say we are close to significant breakthroughs. These include better treatments and even stopping disease progression. You can help us get even closer with your support of Team Fox.

An estimated five million people worldwide live with Parkinson's today. It is the second most common neurological disorder. In the United States, approximately 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

Together, we can change this.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency.

Thank you so much for your donation!

Please help us support The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research by making a contribution to our team and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research's great cause!

Together, we can make a difference!

In honor of my dad, Chuck Swanson. Never a runner (he would have played tennis 'til the cows came home to raise funds to fight this disease), he would have applauded your efforts and spirits! Many thanks, and much love to the Best Pace Scenario Team :)
