ANN ARBOR, MI (June 9, 2014) – A Michigan teenager showed his brotherly love in a very big way on Saturday.

Hunter Gandee walked 40 miles with his little brother Braden on his back to help raise awareness for cerebral palsy.

Cerebral palsy is a condition that that keeps Braden from walking without help.

They started on Saturday morning and finished by Sunday afternoon.

The 40 mile trek stretched from the wrestling room at Bedford Junior High to the University of Michigan’s wrestling center.

And Hunter took every step with 50-pound Braden  on his back.

But when Hunter got tired he said finding motivation was easy.

“All the people that came to support us, and all the help that they have given us, and also all the kids out there with CP who are having trouble with everyday of their life.”
