This iReport is part of an assignment:
San Diego Comic-Con 2012
Lightsaber Relay to Comic Con
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Course of the Force took off from Santa Monica, California on Saturday, July 07, 2012 with Chris Hardwick (@Nerdist) and five children representing the Make a Wish Foundation for which the proceeds benefit.
This inaugural relay race with lightsabers in hand will make stops along the coastal beaches, but their ultimate destination is Comic Con in San Diego on Wednesday, July 11th by noon.
Many celebrities participated in the event including Zachary Levi (NBC’s “Chuck”), Chris Hardwick, Paul Sheer, Michael Rosenbaum, and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca).
Many characters were present such as Queen Amidala, Yoda, Darth Vader, and Princess Leia.
It was fun for the whole family.
