WWE supports family's campaign to raise awareness for cerebral palsy


A 14-year-old in Michigan, Hunter Gandee, recently completed a 40 mile walk -- dubbed the "Cerebral Palsy Swagger" with his seven-year-old brother strapped to his back. He did this in an attempt to raise awareness for cerebral palsy, a disease that has plagued his younger sibling to the point that he is unable to walk on his own.

Having been made aware of this family's mission, WWE decided to show its support by inviting all of them to last night's episode of Monday Night Raw in Cleveland, Ohio, and treat them all to a good time.

From a press release:

Gandee recently raised awareness for cerebral palsy by walking 40 miles with his younger brother strapped to his back. While at Raw, Hunter and his family received a backstage tour, met WWE Superstars as well as guest star Kevin Hart, and sat ringside for the event. All of us at WWE applaud Gandee for his efforts in raising awareness and funds for this very important cause.

Here's video of the family's visit to Raw:

Well done, WWE.
