This is Jacob.
Jacob is walking from Perth to Sydney to raise money for the Starlight Childrens Foundation…….. and he’s doing it in a Storm Trooper outfit!
I met him this week on his short visit to Adelaide. He was walking into the city to visit the children at the Womens and Childrens Hospital.
The day I met him it was 39 degrees celsius!
Jacob was meant to finish his 4000km walk a month ago. But, he has that many people stopping to talk to him, make donations and to have their photos taken that he’s now expected to arrive in Sydney in late March!
I made a donation when I saw him. If anyone would like to help him with his fundraising target of $50,000 they’d be most welcome to donate online at
