A 40-mile piggyback ride to raise awareness for kids with special needs
Hunter Gandee will go for a walk this weekend.
That might not seem noteworthy. You might be planning on doing the same.
But starting Saturday morning, the 14-year-old from Temperance plans to walk 40 miles, from his home to the University of Michigan campus, carrying his 7-year-old brother, Braden, on his back the entire way.
Braden has cerebral palsy, and his walker doesn't move well on grass, sandy areas or in crowds.
Hunter isn't walking to raise money, but to focus attention on the problem of mobility for kids with special needs.
