Here’s a very touching story that would play with the heart strings of even a Dark Lord of the Sith.

With Kevin Doyle’s wife Eileen sadly passed away to cancer, our plucky Kevin decided he would honour her memory by marching the 600 miles to San Diego Comic-Con on foot in honour of her memory and to raise dosh for his charity Eileen’s Little Angels.

Kevin said, “Eileen and I both shared a passion for Star Wars and are members of the world-wide costuming organization the 501st Legion and as a member I regularly participate in charitable events, fund-raising and various walks. This time I will be walking in Eileen’s memory. With the money raised I will be able to create such things as a colouring book, bandanna’s, a blanket and plush toys…all featuring Eileen’s artwork. It is my hope that this walk will help me to heal and give my life purpose by sharing Eileen’s spirit through her artwork with children battling cancer and put a little sunshine into their lives.”
