Event promotes awareness of growing diabetes threat By Dylan JimBntz Staff Writer About 150 runners and walkers raised almost $30,000 Saturday for community programs at the West Side Community Center during the Afoot for Fitness health walk-run. *The walk-run was organized by volunteers and the Institute for Public Health and Education Research to promote awareness of a growing problem in Texas—diabetes. Dan Nichols, 41, was one of 50 Scooter Store enjployees who participated in the event. Nichols used to run when he was younger and has had a goal of getting back into the habit to maintain good health. “My wife and I see it as an opportunity to start the commitment,” he said. He told himself if he could run three miles, he could run more often. He has challenged himself to run in the many charitable runs in the area. Later this month, Nichols plans to run in the Race with a Twist up the Tower of Americas in San Antonio. The commitment is one the public health institute hopes to promote as the annual run continues through the years. “One of the things that Latinos don't do is they don’t exercise,” said Dr. Carlos Campos, a New Braun fels physician who helped orchestrate Saturday’s event. Research shows that walking 30 to 45 minutes, five days a week “makes all the difference in the world," he said. One in four Comal County residents has or will have diabetes if current trends continue. Most patients — 75 percent — can improve their health by getting more exercise and watching their diets, Campos said. The other goal of the walk was to raise funds. The money will go to support the many community programs at the center, including two new diabetes education programs starting in January. One will teach the general public about diabetes and its risks. The See DIABETES, Page 3A Body of woman found by roadway By Ron Maloney Staff Writer SPRING BRANCH — A 77-year-old Spring Branch woman found dead alongside a county road Saturday morning apparently died of natural — after fire destroyed her car. A motorist found Earlene S. Cavanah’s body in the 300 block of West Branch Crossing early Saturday morning — a couple of hours after Cavanah’s burnt -up car had been found in a driveway just up the road. Precinct 3 Justice of the Pe ace Diana Campos pronounced Cavanah dead at 9:45 a.m. in the 300 block of West Branch Crossing. T he body was taken to the Travis County Medical Examiner s Office in Austin for autopsy, but foul play was not suspected. QiiiUil County Sheriffs Detective lim Rose, who investigated the death, said Cavanah’s car probably broke down f riday night. “She apparently had mechanical trouble and the car caught fire,’’ Rose said. “It would appear that she attempted to walk home." Rose said Cavanah could have become disoriented on the dark road, which is just off Rebecca Springs Road and west of Canyon Lake. Rose said he did not know what caused Cavanah’s death. She was found about five feet from the roadway, down a small embankment. “We don’t know if she stumbled and fell, had a heart attack or died of exposure,” Rose said.
