BEDFORD, MI – Hunter Gandee’s 7-year-old brother Braden has cerebral palsy, which affects his motor ability. To raise awareness of the disease, Hunter set out on a 40 mile trek, carrying his 45 pound little bro the entire way.

“When I thought of the idea I thought it would be just me and Braden. Obviously, as you can see, it’s not that,” Hunter told a reporter during the walk.

With friends and supporters following and lining the streets, the effort picked-up national and international attention.
