FastTrack Pittsburgh's Year 17 Event Achieves Record-Breaking Success

Pittsburgh, PA -May 20, 2024 - FastTrack Pittsburgh, a local charity dedicated to supporting the fight against Huntington’s Disease (HD), celebrated a triumphant Year 17 event on May 19th, 2024. The event saw enthusiastic participation from 117 drivers and 30+ dedicated volunteers, raising over $32,000 in 2024 alone, and bringing the total funds raised by FastTrack Pittsburgh to an impressive $255,000+ since its inception.

FastTrack Pittsburgh, formally known as "Barbara Lee’s Fast Track to a Cure for Huntington’s Disease," was created by Morgan McLane in honor of her Aunt Barbara, who was diagnosed with HD in December 1999. Huntington's Disease is an inherited, degenerative brain disorder that leads to the progressive loss of control over both mind and body. Morgan’s aunt, Barbara, experienced the devastating effects of HD, which led to her losing her battle in April 2010.

"We are overwhelmed by the support we received this year," said Morgan McLane, Founder of FastTrack Pittsburgh. "Our community has once again shown its incredible generosity and commitment to helping those affected by Huntington’s Disease. We couldn't have achieved this without our dedicated volunteers, drivers, and supporters."

The funds raised will go towards various initiatives aimed at improving the lives of individuals and families affected by HD, including providing essential supplies, educational resources, and youth support services.

FastTrack Pittsburgh extends its heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in this year's event and looks forward to continuing its mission of raising funds and awareness for Huntington’s Disease. Your support helps put Huntington’s Disease on a “FastTrack” to the finish line of finding a cure.
