GOOD NEWS Teen Carries Little Brother on His Back for 111 Miles Across Michigan
Every year, Hunter Gandee carries his little brother Braden on his back to raise awareness for those with cerebral palsy.
Their journey, affectionately known as “The Cerebral Palsy Swagger,” is a miles-long trek across Michigan that serves to uplift people around the country.
In 2014, the two walked 40 miles together. Last year, they did 57 miles.
Monday afternoon, the boys’ third and final walk will come to an end at the Michigan State Capitol, the family wrote on Facebook.
Braden, now 9 years old, is expected to walk the last half-mile in Lansing using his walker.
“He's pretty excited right now,” 16-year-old Hunter said as the two set off in Temperance last week.
The annual event is slated to come to an end as Hunter gets ready to go into his senior year of high school in the fall.
“Braden is getting bigger,” Hunter told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “We've had a great time, so far.”
