Thousands take part in Music City Muscle Walk

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

More than a thousand people came together Saturday to help find a cure for muscular dystrophy.

The fourth annual Music City Muscle Walk took place at Bridgestone Arena Saturday afternoon.

The walk is the largest event of its kind in the country, with over 160 walks nationwide.

All the proceeds go to the MDA, which is dedicated to finding a cure for muscular dystrophy and ALS -- or Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Last year the event raised $75,000, and more than $10 million has been raised since the program began in 2011.
