15 Year Old Michigan Boy Hunter Gandee Completes 57 Mile Walk With His Brother Bradenon on his Back To Bring Awareness to Cerebral Palsy
BROTHERLY LOVE … FANTASTIC, SIMPLY FANTASTIC!!!
Feel good story of the week. On Sunday, 15 year old Hunter Gandee completed a 57 mile walk with his brother Bradenon on his back to raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy. Hunter’s brother suffers from Cerebral Palsy. Hunter said that the long distance walk was not intended to be a fundraiser; however, the walk made national headlines and he rallied support to raise $200,000 toward the construction of a handicap accessible playground at Branden’s school.
A 15-year-old Michigan boy on Sunday completed a three-day, 57-mile walk across the state, carrying his younger brother on his back, as part of a campaign to raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy.
Hunter Gandee started the long trek with little brother Braden, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, on Friday morning in Lambertville, Michigan, an unincorporated community near the Ohio border.
The brothers reached the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor at about 4 p.m. on Sunday, joined for the final leg by friends and family.
The walk, which made national headlines, marks the second long-distance march for the brothers.
Last year, they walked to Ann Arbor from their home in Temperance, Mich.
Hunter Gandee said the walk was not intended as a fundraiser, but rather an awareness campaign about the debilitating condition. During the hike, though, he rallied support to raise $200,000 toward the construction of a handicap accessible playground at Branden’s school
