I don’t usually post on the weekend but when an item of news catches my eye I just have to share it. I did this one earlier but forgot to post it! Ooops…sorry.. 😦 Anyway, I thought you would still want to see it.
I love this guy. We had been following his trek through the news for the last few months and I have nothing but admiration for his determination.
Jacob French walked across Australia in full Stormtrooper costume for charity, finishing on the 9th of April. Yes, walked. Having travelled through many parts of Australia in our air conditioned four-wheel drive I can only imagine what it would have been like for him in a close-fitting plastic suit.
It took him nine months to walk from Perth to Sydney and he did it all for the Starlight Childrens Foundation. He hoped to raise $50,000. He did far better and raised $100,000. My new hero 🙂
