Boys Who Walked 40 Miles for Cerebral Palsy Throw First Pitch

By  | 

Two brothers in Michigan got a little more recognition for their story that captured national headlines.

Hunter and Braden Gandee threw out the first pitch at Sunday's Detroit Tigers game against the Colorado Rockies.

Hunter, 14, carried Braden, 7, who has cerebral palsy, on his back over two days in June when they walked from their home town of Temperance to Ann Arbor -- a 40-mile trip.

They called the walk "The Cerebral Palsy Swagger" to raise awareness for the condition that prevents Braden from walking on his own.
