Teen Carries Brother 57 Miles

(CNN)Hunter Gandee, 15, used to carry his little brother Braden around because it was convenient. Now, he knows it can be a powerful tool to raise awareness, too.
With 8-year-old Braden strapped to his back, Hunter on Sunday completed a 57-mile walk across southern Michigan. The teen planned the trek, the Cerebral Palsy Swagger, to bring greater recognition to people such as Braden who are afflicted with cerebral palsy, a debilitating brain disorder.
Hunter said "I've seen what my brother has to do and struggle with in everyday life, Walking is his biggest struggle, and we wanted to show people that."
