    Home> U.S. Michigan Teen Begins 40-Mile Trek Carrying Brother

    Called the Cerebral Palsy Swagger, the trek's goal is to raise awareness for the muscle disorder that afflicts Braden and to grab the attention of the next generation of leaders, doctors, engineers and entrepreneurs and show them the face of cerebral palsy and the need for new ideas in mobility aides and medical procedures.

    Braden and Hunter Gandee already had a special brotherly bond. But it was made all the stronger this weekend.

    Seven-year-old Braden was born with cerebral palsy, a condition that makes the muscles in his legs difficult to control. He wears braces and can only walk with the aid of a walker.
