After walking 40 miles in the summer sun, Hunter and Braden Gandee completed their remarkable trek today to raise awareness about cerebral palsy. During the entire walk Hunter Gandee carried his little brother Braden, to give a face to the disease.
Braden, 7, is unable to walk without assistance due to the disease.
Hunter Gandee, 14, hatched the plan for the walk as a way to draw attention to the disease. For months the high school student trained with weights to prepare his body for carrying his little brother that many miles.
