MARNE, Mich. -- A very special family making their way to West Michigan on Saturday afternoon for the annual Lori's Voice Walk For The Challenged event at Berlin Raceway in Marne.
The Gandees -- a mother, father and four kids -- traveled three hours from Temperance to attend.
Their youngest son, Braden, 9, was born with cerebral palsy, making these types of events near and dear to their hearts.
The family started a project called the "Cerebral Palsy Swagger" where the oldest of the four, Hunter, 16, has carried Braden on his back for three different walks.
The first was 40 miles, the second 57 miles and the third was about 111 miles from Bedford High School in Temperance all the way to the State Capitol building in Lansing.
Hunter says each of these walks was very difficult, but worth it after seeing his brother enjoy them so much.
He also says that Braden actually pushed the limits during their last and longest walk. He says Braden actually walked the last half mile to the Capitol building by himself accomplishing something he never thought he could do.
Hunter says this all started after his mother had a dream about him carrying his brother on his back, raising awareness for cerebral palsy.
