Michigan 14-year-old begins 40-mile trek carrying brother on back | Fox News
TEMPERANCE, Mich. A 14-year-old Michigan boy set out on a 40-mile trek on Saturday with his 7-year-old brother strapped to his back, hoping to raise awareness about the muscular condition that prevents the younger boy from being able to walk without help.
Hunter Gandee, with 50-pound Braden securely strapped to his back, left shortly after 8 a.m. from the parking lot of Bedford Junior High School in Temperance, which is near the Ohio border. They hoped to arrive Sunday at their destination, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Thanks for sharing Ballen0351,
Stories like this one and so many more give lie to the oft feeling that young folks just don't get it.

Regards

Good to read about a kid who doesn't view his little brother as a burden. Hell, my older son does that to my younger son sometimes, and the younger one is mobile!
