Running the London Marathon dressed in a full Stormtrooper costume

Post by Jez on Sun Jan 24, 2016 6:53 pm

Hey there.
I'm just trying to spread the word about a crazy charity effort i'll be doing in April.
I'm going to be running the 2016 London Marathon dressed in a full Stormtrooper costume for the wonderful charity that is Make A Wish.

I've set up a Facebook page here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , which explains everything and shows some Make A Wish videos.

I have also set up a just giving page here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This is going to be really tough but it's so worth it if i can raise a good chunk of money for Make A Wish.

Thanks to Mark Newbold from Jedi News i'm now working with Steve Buckley from the UKG, who has kindly agreed to loan me his Stormtrooper armour.

I'll be having a fitting next Sunday and begin training with the outfit soon after that.  Watch this space for a video i'll make and upload of a crazy guy running around his town dressed as a Stormtrooper.

Please check out my Facebook page and spread the word.  These poor kids need our help, and so do their parents for that matter.

Thanks for looking.  Jez

Oh ya! I saw your post a couple weeks back (I think) and totally forgot Shocked and wanted to donate.

April is approaching fast. We'll talk offline more about that. I'll make a donation today. I'll make sure I track the payment; inside joke guys.
