He's got the whole world in his hands, literally

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Erik Bendl started his globe trek in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in January and he's already made it through Savannah.

He'll keep rolling along until March 10. With every revolution, he's raising awareness about diabetes.

"Having watched my mother go through the devastating effects of diabetes, it's well worth it to keep yourself in shape. You can be fluffy and fit like me and keep diabetes away," said Bendl.
