Go-Kart Event Raises Big Money For Huntington Disease

A highly successful Huntington's Indy Go-Kart Challenge.

The 14th annual event raised more than $14,000 for Windsor-Essex families coping with the effects of Huntington disease.

More than 200 residents attended the event at the Zap Zone Fun Centre on Ambassador Drive in Windsor.

Windsor chapter president Paul Bateman says they picked go-karting because the first thing a lot of people with Huntington's lose is the ability to drive. 

Huntington's is a genetic brain disorder which leaves sufferers unable to move, think or speak.
