About Winnipeg Indy

Join local volunteers at the 2020 Winnipeg Indy Go-Kart Challenge on Sunday, September 13

We are thrilled to be able to host this event as scheduled this year but safety remains a priority. Review the measures in place at the event in the FAQ and remember to stay home if you are feeling unwell.

Fundraising events, like the Go-Kart Indy, contribute roughly 1/3 of the monies raised for the Huntington Society of Canada every year. As such, we have a fantastic opportunity to make a big difference this year, for our 25th anniversary! Start your personal fundraising page here today! All monies raised will support Family Services in Manitoba and National/International Research to delay or stop Huntington disease.

Thanks to a kind donor, your event impact will be doubled this fall! Donations received by September 30th will be matched dollar for dollar so we can make double the progress towards providing support for HD families today, and give hope, by changing the course of this disease, for HD families tomorrow.

The first Indy Go-Kart Challenge took place in Niagara Falls, raising $3,000. In 1996, the Indys went National and have raised well over $1 million for the HD community. Now, as Canada's largest fundraising Go-Kart event, this volunteer-led day is dedicated to Canadian families whose lives are affected by Huntington disease.
