ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A strange sight today in St. Joseph County: A man walking along the side of the road, walking a dog, and pushing a six foot high globe.

He's called the "World Guy," and he's on a nationwide mission to raise awareness about diabetes.

Erik Bendl has walked more than 6,000 miles with his dog, Nice.

In the past six years, they've been to 39 states and Washington D.C., to help encourage exercise and to help prevent and control diabetes.

He keeps a blog about his travels, so you can bet his next post will be about the people he met today in Michiana.

We have a link to the “World Guy” blog posted on the big red bar.

You can also donate to his mission.
