We have a special invitation for the local community, students and alumni who may be in the area celebrating with family over the holiday to join Jeff and Janine, co-founders of Pacing For The Cure, in the walk and day at the races.

This year’s event is in honor of William Gesek, Saint Joseph alumni, who had suffered with MS for more than 30 years and recently passed away on Oct. 4. His family would have been celebrating his 80th birthday with him during this holiday weekend. His son, Jeff, Saint Joseph alumni, and his wife, Janine, Thomas Jefferson University and Drexel alumni, started Pacing For The Cure to raise awareness about the disease and honor his father’s courageous fight against MS.

Consider forming your own walk/run teams of up to 10 and collect your team pledges. The Pacing For The Cure walk/run and day at the races is a great way to socialize with your team, meet new friends, and enjoy the sport of harness racing while raising money to help us fight MS.

Pacing For The Cure is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping people living with MS in financial need to obtain necessary medical equipment and services. We also support cutting edge human immunology research to find a cure for this debilitating disease of the central nervous system. 

For more information about this event or if you know someone who would like to be a sponsor, please email jeff@pacingforthecure.org or contact Susan Crowley at scrowley@harrahs.com or 484-490-1910 at Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack.
