Rimrock Mall Hosts Montana Muscle Walk

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - People from all over the region traveled to the Magic City Saturday for the annual Muscle Walk at Rimrock Mall.

Twenty teams from Montana and northern Wyoming participated in Saturday's event. The walk is organized by the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Montana to raise money for research and honor those affected by various muscle diseases. Organizer Mike McMillin said the annual event is like a family reunion for many people.

"A lot of times there's only one person that's affected in an entire community in Montana. To give that person the ability to come to an event like this and find somebody else that might be across the state from them, is just huge," McMillin said. "They can draw similarities with them. They can talk to them about the resources that are available for them. It gives them some friendship and some realization that they're not the only one out there."

One hundred percent of proceeds from Saturday's event go the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
