– The Gandee Family was backstage at last night’s RAW in Cleveland, bringing Cerebral Palsy awareness with them. High school football player Hunter Gandee has been in the news lately because he recently walked with his 52 pound brother Braden on his back for 40 miles. Braden has Cerebral Palsy and the family is now raising money to transform a playground in Bedford, Michigan into a handicapped accessible playground. They met Stephanie McMahon, John Cena and others before RAW last night. Check out their “The Cerebral Palsy Swagger” page at this link.
