Teen Carries 8-Year-Old Brother 57 Miles for Cerebral Palsy Awareness
A Michigan teen walked 57 miles with his 8-year-old brother on his back to raise awareness for cerebral palsy.
Hunter Gandee, 15, completed the three-day, second annual Cerebral Palsy Swagger walk Sunday. Hunter said he planned the walk after his mother had a dream last year that he carried his 8-year-old brother Braden on his back to raise awareness for cerebral palsy, which Braden suffers from.
Last year, Hunter carried Braden for 40 miles. This year, he upped it to 57 miles, explaining today on “Fox and Friends” that this year’s walk was actually easier because he trained for it.
Hunter said the goal of the walk is to teach people about Braden’s disability and the struggles he goes through on a daily basis.
Braden said he initially thought Hunter’s idea was “pretty crazy.” He told Brian Kilmeade, “Hunter is awesome because no other brother probably in the world would carry their younger brother 57 miles.”
