STORYFUL- A 16-year-old from Temperance, Michigan, is teaching people how to stand up and fight for what you believe in by walking over 111 miles in less than a week to raise awareness of cerebral palsy.

Hunter Gandee walked 40 miles in 2014 and nearly 60 miles last year, while carrying his younger brother Braden, who was born with cerebral palsy, on his back.

This year, Hunter is walking 111 miles.

Hunter and Braden set off from Bedford High School in Temperance, Michigan, on April 20 and planned to walk all the way to the State Capital Building in Lansing, Michigan. Hunter set up a social media page for the walks called The Cerebral Palsy Swagger and the page has been updated throughout the journey, showing the brothers, and those joining in on the walk, being cheered as they reached the final rest stop of each day.
