Hunter Gande, 16, and his younger brother Braden walked 178 miles last week, the distance from their hometown of Temperance to the steps of the Michigan State Capitol. And almost all the way, the older brother carried Braden, who has cerebral palsy.
This is the second time the brothers have taken part in the Cerebral Palsy Swagger, an annual event that aims to raise as much awareness about cerebral palsy as possible. Last time, the Gande brothers covered a distance of 64 kilometers.
This time the boys’ trip lasted five days – they left on April 20 and arrived at their destination on the 25th. rest and refresh. And on the evening of April 25, we finally reached the first step of the Michigan State Capitol building.
These five days together were really important for the guys. This lead was the last for Hunter and Braden, as next fall Hunter is going to college and won’t be able to spend as much time with his younger brother.
