We recently posted the story on Hunter Gandee and how he was going to carry his brother 40 miles to raise money along with awareness for those with cerebral palsy. Well this past week, Hunter did what he set out to do--he finished his quest to carry his brother 40 miles.
On Saturday, June 7, 2014, Hunter started his 40 mile journey from the gymnasium at his junior high school--Bedford Junior High. In the beginning, he walked 25 miles before he stopped overnight in a nearby city and the next morning he resumed his journey right where he left off to finish the last 15 miles.
On the walk, Hunter carried his brother and was supported by over 100 followers at the University of Mighigan's Bahna Wrestling Center. The walk was just another step after Hunter had raised $350 selling green cerebral palsy wrist bands. The parents of both Hunter and Braden (his younger brother with cerebral palsy), knew that this was something that Hunter wanted to do and so they stayed close by in their car just in case.
