This guy dressed up as a storm trooper and walked for 9 months to complete the 4000km journey from Perth to Sydney. He lost 12 KG in weight and wore out 7 pairs of shoes before completing his journey. Is he nuts? No, he did it to raise awareness for the Star Light Foundation. He raised $100,000, $50K more than he set out to raise. Awesome shots of him walking with beautiful John Williams score. Visit: http://www.starlight.org/
+Mark Spencer, if you've been following +Tom Anderson you'll know, he is a forward -looking ahead to the future type of guy and a fantastic artist with a camera I might add. He doesn't go backwards in life.
+Michael Gardner Actually there are a lot of people in the world who are this committed. They're just committed to the wrong things, and tend to show their dedication using bombs and guns. You can't show much more commitment to a cause than by strapping a bomb to your chest. It doesn't make the world a better place, but it's still commitment.
That is crazy but so awesome. That guy really deserves some props. He is very good for that, that is just great I bet most of the people on earth couldn't do that so he really made himself stand out amongst people. Really I agree. Almost too amazing for words.
i bet some little kid saw him and was all "mommy!!! i just saw a storm trooper!" and then the mom is all "awww! that REALLY cool sweetie!!!" like she KNOWS it cant be! i really feel for little kids, its like, i bet we really DO have monsters under our beds but the kiddies are smarter than us... so they figure it out.
He passed through our town and now there's a generation of little tackers who believe the Republic and it's Storm Troopers are the "Good Guys"! hahaha Seriously though. He's one amazing, determined and genuinely lovely bloke from all accounts. More power to him and the Star Light Foundation. Great work.
It seems he has selected the cause to support. Then to achieve the maximum result, he has chosen the Storm Trooper outfit to make the people to sit up and look at him as a strategy. I salute his planning and dedication.
Don't know if any one said this but here goes! If only all clones had this dedication and respect we might be able to feed the homeless people, sick, etc! We aren't all clones but we can have same goals put others first in stead of yourself and maybe things will change! Just saying
When a person decide to allocate such dedication to a cause he/she is becoming a role model for the rest of us - the force is strong in those people! and by doing their deed they share their force with the rest of us!
tom, lets do something like this in the USA. I will be the princess Leha. We can assemble a full cast by using homeless people as storm troopers and promising them a cornucopia of food at the destination!
My mothers ex boyfriend Ray did a walk like this downunder, many years ago, to raise funds...can't remember the details, but sheesh that guy would've cooked in our heat with that outfit...talk about keen!
Great effort for a worthy cause. There are many in Australia who take up these challenges for charity & the public support is huge. More power to those who achieve. Agree with your posted comment of living life to the fullest. Live for each moment, all life is precious & at 71 I believe every day I wake up is a bonus I will make the most of. Go for it mate...
