Star Wars walk

Kevin Doyle is walking 645 miles to honor his late wife.  But it's not just any 645 miles.  He's walking from Rancho Obi-Wan to Comic-Con in San Diego.  His walk began on June 6 with Kevin averaging 20 miles a day.  And he's doing this dressed in full Stormtrooper armor.  He's met curious people along the way as well as cancer survivors, their family members, and those who have lost one to the disease.  His wife passed in 2012 from pancreatic cancer.  She always told him that he was "such a dork."  She herself was a "self-proclaimed geek" and they both loved Star Wars so Kevin knew this is what he had to do.  He's bringing awareness and raising money to donate items to children with cancer.  After Comic-Con Kevin plans to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge with a full garrison of costumed Stormtroopers before heading home.  walk
