15-Year-Old Carries Brother With Cerebral Palsy On His Back For 57 Miles
Last year, Hunter Gandee made headlines after piggybacking his brother for 40 miles to raise awareness for cerebral palsy.
This year, the 15-year-old upped the ante, and the world is taking notice.
Gandee first came up with the idea for the Cerebral Palsy Swagger challenge as a means to raise awareness for the neurological disorder his younger brother, Braden, suffers from.
Cerebral palsy, for the unfamiliar, limits movement and coordination, among other things. As a result, 8-year-old Braden cannot walk without assistance.
In an effort to inform others on the physical limitations and challenges of the disease, Hunter carried his brother an incredible 57 miles this year, from Lambertville, Michigan to Ann Arbor, Michigan.
