Teen carries disabled brother on his back for 40 miles

Posted: Updated:
Ann Arbor, MI - A Michigan teenager is showing his brotherly love in a very big way.  He's walking 40 miles this weekend to raise awareness for cerebral palsy and he's doing it with his little brother on his back.

Brothers, Hunter and Braden Gandee, started their journey Saturday from the wrestling room at Bedford Jr. High and finished Sunday at the wrestling center at the University of Michigan.

Seven-year-old Braden was born with cerebral palsy which affects his motor ability. Hunter is taking every step with his 45 pound brother strapped to his back.

Hunter's efforts to bring awareness to CP has grabbed national *and* international attention.   A long line of friends and supporters followed behind and lined the roads.
