DETROIT — A Michigan teen recently completed a 57-mile trek while carrying his brother on his back to raise awareness about cerebral palsy.

Hunter Gandee, 15, carried his brother, Braden, on his back during the “Cerebral Palsy Swagger”. Braden has cerebral palsy which prevents him from walking without assistance.

However, this isn’t the first time the brothers have done something like this, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Last summer Gandee walked 40 miles with his then 7-year-old brother strapped onto his back in a harness.

The two finished their journey on Sunday at the University of Michigan’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Center in Ann Arbor.
