Sports Illustrated HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETE OF THE MONTH

June 15, 2015

Presented by THE U.S. MARINE CORPS

Hunter Gandee, a 160-pound freshman wrestler at Bedford High in Temperance, Mich., walked 57 miles in about 32 hours over three days last weekend while carrying his eight-year-old brother, Braden, on his back. Braden has cerebral palsy, and the pair's trek, dubbed the Cerebral Palsy Swagger, reprised a 40-mile hike they completed last year to raise awareness. This year's journey began with a ground breaking at Braden's school for an accessible playground which the duo helped raise $200,000 to build, and ended at Michigan's Pediatric Rehabilitation Center in Ann Arbor. Hunter, who was named the Kicking Mules' practice co-wrestler of the year for his work ethic, displayed the same determination along all 152,725 steps of the walk. "I may be sore," Hunter said at the finish, "but [Braden] has to go through things every day, and he does it with a smile. That inspires me." For more of Hunter's story, visit SI.com/HSathlete
