Walking To Raise Awareness...

Last Saturday afternoon’s intermittent rain did little to slow Erik Bendl, better known as “World Guy,” and his dog, “Nice,” as they made their way alongside State Road 46 westbound toward Spencer. Bendl has walked over six thousand miles for the cause of diabetes awareness. During the last six years the pair have walked in more than thirty-nine states and Washington, D.C. to help diabetes organizations and encourage people to get healthy with exercise and diet to control and prevent diabetes. His is a simple message... “Love yourself. Go for a walk.” Learn more by visiting www.worldguy.org. (Staff Photo)
