15-Year-Old Carries His Younger Brother 57 Miles To Raise Awareness For Cerebral Palsy!

A family that walks 57 miles together, stays together.

Those words have never rang more true than they did over the weekend when 15-year-old Hunter Gandee carried his little brother Braden 57 miles to raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy.

You see, Braden, 8, has the movement disorder, and Hunter wanted to show how difficult something we take for granted, like walking, can be for other people.

The pair were joined by other people who wanted to partake in the walk, and the 57 miles were broken up into three different days, with physical trainers assisting all along the way!

Hunter spoke about his commitment to helping his brother, saying:

“I wanted to show people the struggles that Braden has to go through daily. I wanted to go out and show people we can make the world a better place for people with cerebral palsy.

If it weren’t for everyone cheering and walking with us, I wouldn’t have been able to do it. I collapsed at the end of the second day because I was so tired. My legs were so sore but my friends picked me up and I made it through the third day.”

Awwwww, what a good brother!

And if this story seems like d├â┬⌐j├â┬á vu to you, you’re not going crazy — Hunter made headlines in 2014 for carrying Braden 40 miles for the same cause.

We wonder how far they’ll make it next year??
