Michigan Man to Walk 400 Miles on Stilts to Raise Money in the Fight Against Cerebral Palsy

Talk about standing tall.

Neil Sauter, 29, is in the midst of walking around his home state of Michigan to raise money for the United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan.

Oh, and did we mention he’s doing it on stilts?

Sauter, aka the Michigan Stilt Walker, suffers from a mild form of the disease. He began his tour of the Great Lakes State on April 12 and plans to wrap things up on May 19.

This isn’t the first time he’s pulled a stunt like this. Back in 2008, he completed an 830-jaunt around the state, where he raised $85,000. This time around, he wants to top that amount.

As you might expect from someone who stands so high, walking on stilts for charity makes Sauter feel like he’s on top of the world. He especially loves seeing the curious motorists as they pass him by, noting, “My entertainment for the day is watching the faces in each of the cars.” Those drivers aren’t just curious, either. Sauter says a good chunk of his donations come from them
