14-year-old carries brother 40 miles to raise awareness about cerebral palsy
14-year-old Michigan teen Hunter Gandee did something not even many adults would do when he decided to carry his 7-year-old brother, Braden, who suffers from cerebral palsy and is unable to walk without help, in a march dedicated to raising awareness about the issue. 
 
Dubbed the Cerebral Palsy Swagger, the 40-mile (approximately 63 KM) march took two days to complete and was the brainchild of Hunter and his family. 

According to ABC, its goal was to “get the attention of the next generation of researchers, scientists, and doctors to show them ‘the face’ of cerebral palsy. They hope to inspire experts to develop new medical procedures and mobility devices for those with cerebral palsy.”

Well done, Hunter!
 
Hunter made sure to document the entire march on Twitter and you can see that here!
