    On November 22nd, Joseph Schönberger, TK-3699 from Garrison Tyranus, will be running in the Philadelphia Marathon to raise money for the Make A Wish foundation. He?s running in memory of Katie Johnson and will run in Stormtrooper armor to increase visibility, and because Katie would've loved it. While it?s true that running in armor is no longer considered unique, at least within the Star Wars community, this effort is a little different.

    Joe is spearheading an international campaign called ?Kilometers 4 Katie?. Its purpose is to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and to raise awareness of the organization and all of the fantastic work they do to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions and provide them with hope, strength, and joy. The Philadelphia Marathon is just the beginning.

    ?Kilometers 4 Katie,? or ?Km4KT? for short, is a group whose mission to encourage individuals to participate in events in their own towns as a member of Team: Km4KT. We may be geographically separated, but that doesn?t mean aren?t unified.

    We know that one person can make a difference in the lives of others.
    One person already has made that difference, and her name was Katie.

    Thank you




    Ok, I know this is the US Make a Wish Foundation, but this is for Katie. Do yourselves a favour and watch the video at the bottom of the website, it will move you. If we all put $2, we can give just a little to his cause. I have printed out the forms, and if people wish to help, PM me your intentions. I will leave this up for a month or so and see what I get. I will be putting some $$ forward, but would like to say it was from the SAFF if possible. ;)
