The stormtrooper who walked across Australia

Jacob French today completed the over 3,100 mile trek from Perth to Sydney in a full body stormtrooper costume, Getty Images reports, having raised over $100,000 for the Starlight Children's Foundation in the process.

Since July 2011 — when he was featured on PhotoBlog at the start of his journey — Jacob has walked 10 hours a day, five days a week, lost over 26 lb in weight, and gone through seven pairs of shoes.

The Starlight Children's Foundation, which also operates in the United States, provides programs to help lift the spirits of sick children in hospitals.
