(KSL News) -- The Muscular Dystrophy Association got a big boost today. Thanks to generous donations, Associated Food Stores has raised a record $149,500.

Record Amount Raised for Muscular Dystrophy

Eight-year old Tyler Padilla accepted the check this morning on behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Neal Berube, Associated Food Stores: "Sometimes you don't know how much it means just to have someone who cares. Tyler, here you go bud."

A large amount of donations came from shamrock sales at check-out lines at grocery stores. Most of the money will go to muscular dystrophy research.
