(ABC News) — Fifty-seven miles would be tough to walk, and even tougher with your brother on your back.
Hunter Gandee, 15, is sore and tired after carrying his 8-year-old brother, Braden, for 57 miles in Michigan to raise awareness for cerebral palsy, he told ABC News today.
Hunter’s trek began Friday and he finally crossed the finish line Sunday afternoon. He began walking from Braden’s elementary school in Lambertville, Michigan, and ended 57-miles later at the University of Michigan’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Center in Ann Arbor.
“I wanted to show people the struggles that Braden has to go through daily. I wanted to go out and show people we can make the world a better place for people with cerebral palsy,” he said.
