15 Year-Old Walks 57 MILES Carrying His Brother On His Back To Raise Awareness For Cerebral Palsy
June 16, 2015
After walking 57 miles with his brother on his back, 15 year-old Hunter Gandee was nothing but smiles as he crossed the finish line and hugged supporters on Sunday.
Hunter and Braden were greeted with cheers at the University of Michigan's Pediatric Rehabilitation Center as they marked the end of the second "Cerebral Palsy Swagger" walk to raise awareness of cerebral palsy, the neurological disorder Braden was born with.
Parents of children with cerebral palsy hope the walk will help spread awareness to clear up misunderstandings people might have.
Danielle Gandee, Braden and Hunter's mother, said there's many things her family didn't know about cerebral palsy – especially issues with limited mobility – that she hopes others will learn from her sons' effort.
"It went great - we walked into a big crowd of people," Hunter said. "It was great to have everyone there... (Braden) was excited - not only that we were done finally, but everyone was there cheering him on."
