FEATURED EVENT EXAMPLE
Star Wars Fans Encouraged To Walk A Mile For Scott Loxley
Pitt Street Mall, Sydney NSW
With International Star Wars Day upon us, Sydneysiders are encouraged to descend on Pitt Street Mall on Monday May the 4th and ‘walk a mile’ for Scott Loxley – the Melbourne man who has been ‘storming Australia’ in his full 501st Legion Sandtrooper Star Wars costume since 2013. As an avid Star Wars fan himself, Scott’s mission is to raise vital funds for the Monash Children’s Hospital, with an aim to secure $100,000 for kids in need. Throughout his 18-month journey, Scott will visit every State and Territory and cover around 15,000kms in total. Visitors to Pitt Street Mall are encouraged to donate a gold coin and hop on a treadmill to do their bit. From 12:30pm – 2:00pm, the team at Fit & Fast will be providing treadmills and fitness instructors, with Stormtrooper helmets and light sabers also on hand to provide to some ‘force’ to each mission!
