Over 150 people made muscles move this morning at the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy.

The event, which took place on Windsor’s riverfront, raised almost $17,000 to assist people with neuromuscular disorders through education, information, support, advocacy and funding for research and assistive devices.

Organizers say one of the walk’s champions was Nathan Tessier, in support of his brother, Parker, who was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy when he was eight.

Nathan raised over $600 for Muscular Dystrophy in just five days at his school, Dr. David Suzuki Public School.

The top fundraising team for the event, Ronin The Barbarians, raised $4,260.28 with help from team members Alan Buterbaugh, Andrea Yzeiri, Christian Paulton, Christie Paulton, Cory Richert, Jane Deneau, Jen-Mai, Ontang & Naek Sirait, Madison Dilkens, Marianne Baeini, Mark Zieba, Nancy Brown, Randy Hamelin and Roberta Hladik.
