Hunter Gandee says "he ain't heavy, he's my brother"

by

ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- A 14-year-old from Temperance, Michigan and his 7-year-old brother have become a national news story.

Hunter Gandee, and his younger brother Braden wanted to raise awareness of Cerebral Palsy and put a face on the disorder, so Hunter decided to carry his brother, who suffers from the disease the 40-miles from their border town to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Hunter says he gives his brother a lift but his little brother also gives him a lift when he needs it too, just by being an inspiration.

They called the long walk the “Cerebral Palsy Swagger”.

It was almost called off after thirty miles when Braden suffered some chafing to his legs, but adjustments were made and they finished yesterday afternoon.

Mission accomplished.
