BEDFORD, Mich. (WNWO) A Michigan teenager began an 111-mile walk with his younger brother strapped to his back Wednesday to raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy.

It started with a festive celebration at Bedford High School.

“This is a long walk. It’s something that I would not be able to accomplish without my friend who are walking with me,” said Hunter Gandee, a sophomore at Bedford. “I’m extremely thankful for the guys that are here with me right now. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d have this many guys with me at this point.”

Gandee has gained national attention for his “CP Swagger” walks. He straps younger brother Braden, who has Cerebral Palsy, to his back before embarking on a trek across the state. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
