Walk for Children with Apraxia

Today R2 joined about 40 members of the 501st and Rebel Legions to help fight Apraxia, in support of one of the Rebel Legion member's son, who suffers from this condition. Apraxia can affect motor skills, among other effects.

Luckily for me, this event was mere minutes from where I live, possibly the closest event I've ever done.

As always, the characters spend a lot of time interacting with attendees and posing for pictures.

About half way through the event, characters and attendees did a short walkathon.

R2 wasn't up for the stroll, but he was waiting for everyone near the finish line.

Everyone had a good time, and I appreciated my three minute drive home. :)
