In an effort to raise awareness for cerebral palsy, a 14-year-old Temperance boy is making a big move by planning to carry his ailing brother for 40 miles.

Hunter Gandee plans to walk June 7 and 8 from Bedford Junior High in Temperance to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor while carrying his brother Braden Gandee, who has cerebral palsy.

The wrestler and football player has adopted awareness of cerebral palsy as a personal cause. He has raised $350 for cerebral palsy research at University of Michigan.

Hunter, who weighs 150 pounds, plans to carry his 50-pound brother piggyback. He tweeted a photo of Braden on his shoulders with the caption, "Practicing for the big day".

The Temperance brothers are expected to be joined on the walk by supporters.
