Jacob French isn’t your average Star Wars fan and member of the 501st Legion. He not only dresses up like a Stormtrooper, he walks 3,000 miles in the costume for charity. French started his walk across Australia in July 2011; beginning his journey in Perth and recently ending it in Sydney. He walked more than ten hours each day and went through seven pairs of shoes. Wow.
The reason for the trip was to raise funds for Starlight Children’s Foundation. The charity helps sick children in hospitals across Australia. French visited with ill children along the way, and his journey ended at Sydney Children’s Hospital. Kids love to see the costume, and he told them stories about his trip. All-in-all, the walk raised more than $98,500.
Impressive. Most impressive.
