Going the extra mile: Teen carries bro for good cause

  • Hunter Gandee says little brother Braden is his inspiration
  • The duo should reach the University of Michigan on Sunday

A 14-year-old Michigan teen isn't just going the extra mile for his little brother. He's doing it for a good cause.

Hunter Gandee is carrying his little brother, Braden, 40 miles to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to raise awareness about cerebral palsy, according to CNN affiliate WTVG.

Hunter said 7-year-old Braden, who has the disorder and uses a walker, is the one who helps lead him in life and his inspiration. The Cerebral Palsy Swagger started Saturday and the brothers should arrive in Ann Arbor sometime on Sunday.
