On Sunday, they strolled up a winding road toward the university's wrestling centre. Asked how he felt, Braden said simply: "Tired."
Hunter acknowledges there was talk of stopping the walk around the 50-kilometre mark due to chafing on his brother's legs.
Called the Cerebral Palsy Swagger, the trek's goal was to raise awareness about cerebral palsy and to put a face on the neurological disorder.
