They were greeted with cheers at the University of Michigan’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Center as they crossed the finish line, after walking 57 miles with his brother on his back. Meet 15 year-old Hunter Gandee, who carried his brother Braden on his back to raise awareness for cerebral palsy.

 

Hunter Gandee smiled as they finished second ‘Cerebral Palsy Swagger’ walk to raise awareness for cerebral palsy. Parents of the children with cerebral palsy hope the walk will help spread awareness to clear up misunderstandings people have towards the cerebral palsy.

There are many things my family didn’t know about cerebral palsy, especially issues with limited mobility. I hope others will learn from my sons’ effort. Said, Danielle Gandee, Braden and Hunter’s mother.
