导读:澳大利亚墨尔本的小伙保罗•雅各布•法兰西(Paul Jacob French)是经典科幻电影《星球大战》的一名“铁杆粉丝”,他穿上模仿电影中角色“冲锋队战士”(Stormtrooper)的盔甲式服装,决定从澳大利亚佩斯走到悉尼,总路程2500英里(4000公里)。法兰西打算每天行走25英里,一星期走五天,直至到达悉尼。他这一举动的目的是为澳大利亚星光公益组织募集善款,星光公益组织旨在给澳大利亚生病和住院的孩子带来光明。法兰西筹款目标为5万澳元。




His master Darth Vader may have turned to the Dark Side, but one Stormtrooper has become a Force for Good, walking across Australia for charity.

Paul Jacob French, from Melbourne, Victoria, is pictured on day five of his 2,500 mile (4,000km) journey from Perth to Sydney walking down Old Mandurah Road near Perth on Friday.

French aims to walk up to 25 miles a day, five days a week, in full Stormtrooper armour until he reaches Sydney. 

He is walking to raise money for the Starlight Foundation - an organisation that aims to brighten the lives of ill and hospitalised children in Australia. His target is A$50,000.

French will probably get to Sydney around Christmas. No one except Paul knows why he chose the Stormtrooper outfit but it's definitely an attention grabber - and it avoids the need for sunscreen.

On the way he will cross the Nullarbor Plain, an 850-mile wide sheet of limestone which is lucky to ever see rain. it nearly killed the first Europeans to attempt it, but the crossing is now a rite of passage for young Australians - they can even collect an 'I crossed the Nullarbor' sticker on the way.

Over the course of the trek he will cross four states pushing his lightweight buggy with supplies.

Paul is a member of the worldwide 501st Legion, a volunteer organisation that wears Star Wars outfits for related events and as a means to contribute to their local communities through charity work. 

He says his involvement with the 501st has been a 'fantastic' experience.

He said: 'In October 2010 I participated in the RunMelb half marathon in my Stormtrooper suit. 

'The suit was restrictive and got quite hot while I was running, but the seed was planted for the Troopertrek idea.

'Since the marathon I have started to train regularly for this event and have acquired a much lighter and flexible set of armour that will be trimmed for better movement. 

'I am hoping that by choosing to wear Stormtrooper armour I will be able to gather more attention for the cause I am running for and have a bit of a laugh along the way.'

He added: 'If there are any social events along the route that you think might benefit from having a Stormtrooper attend, let me know!'
