Five-year-old Brady Lake of Detroit Lakes has enough energy to power a small city, so it might surprise people to learn that a week after he was born, he had to have major surgery to fix a defective heart.


Brady is the local spokesperson for this year's Start! Heart Walk May 14 at the Detroit Lakes Pavilion.

He appeared at a kick-off luncheon Tuesday at the Lodge on Lake Detroit with his mom, Luanna, dad, Mike, and older brother Jacob.
