Rebels-

We've been asked to attend the 2008 Walk with Isaac to support research for a cure for Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a brittle bone disease. Information regarding the appearance request is below:

My wife and 3 year old son have the brittle bone disease Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Heidi has had dozens of breaks and fractures throughout her life and Isaac has been blessed enough to only have a few so far. They both have the mildest form of the disease.

My wife, Heidi and I started Walk with Isaac in 2007 to raise money in the search for a cure. We walk around the warning track @ Ripken Stadium (a minor league team\'s stadium owned by Cal Ripken Jr.) and have auctions, face painting, moon bounce and other family oriented events. Isaac is a huge Star Wars fan (his dad likes it a little bit too). You can learn more at www.oif.org and check out our video from last year\'s walk at http://youtube.com/watch?v=ezvcDt9wO-E We would love to have any and all of the characters come out and walk. Vader is Isaac\'s favorite. He likes the original trilogy more than Episodes 1-3.
How did you hear about us? : 501st website


I think this is a remarkably worthwhile event. Since Mr. Wright is asking for some specific face characters I am going to contact a couple of our neighboring bases to see if they would like to be involved.

Craig,

Which face characters have been requested? I will have my AOTC Anakin done before then.

Sorry, guess I forgot to copy and paste that part Embarassed

Characters Requested:

Number of characters requested: : As many as interested
Rebel Pilots : Rebel Pilots
Rebel Troopers : Rebel Troopers
Jedi : Jedi
Droids : Droids
Royalty : Royalty
Other : Other
Please list additional and/or specific character requests. In addition, besides the "good guy" characters, we also have access to Imperial "bad guy" characters through our sister group, the 501st Stormtrooper Legion. If you\'d like a mix, please let us know that as well: : Isaac likes:
Vader
Han
Luke
Boba
Chewy
and everyone else, even minor characters (we feed his obsession)


I think anyone that can come out will be welcome, so if you have an Anakin done by then, by all means, come out and show it off.

I'd be interested in coming up for this, but I will have to see where gas prices are come september, that and see how much Dragoncon digs into me.

But this sounds more than worth a 3 hour drive Cool

Just as long as it doesn't cost $6.00 a gallon and an arm and a leg hotel stay to get up there n back.

Thanks. I know gas prices are a pain and only getting worse. Keep me posted and I'll keep an eye out for any hotel deals in the area.

Depending on my Uncle Sam and work schedule I might be able to attend this. Will know more in the August Time frame...

Gotta love the military and the wacky nurse schedules! *smirks*

Any updates on this event? I'm having trouble getting on my OLG forum account.

Thanks!

The event is still on schedule. Mr. Wright is very excited to have us there and has put out some flyers mentioning Star Wars characters being at the event. He realizes that we may have some difficulty getting the exact characters he mentioned originally so anyone that can come out is most welcome.

For those that wish to attend this event here are the updates from Mr. Wright, Isaac's father and the event coordinator:

We've listed you guys on the schedule brochure and tee-shirts and I mentioned you when I was on the Ed Norris show. I hope that is okay. We also put your logos & links on our webpage, which you can access here.
http://65.54.224.250/cgi-bin/getmsg/TR.htm?&msg=F6BCD121-05F5-4599-94A6-810062E3572A&start=0&len=59012&mimepart=5&curmbox=B74DA4C2-06BF-4CF3-A73D-F9A9641A88E1&b=193b02316b94520c19b80e7d0b6a9dcc&disk=10.1.106.205_d1250&login=raevenblade&domain=hotmail%2ecom&_lang=EN&country=US&SafeRedirect=%26hm___ts%3d1220766819%26hm___ha%3db940997a1572bdf286c0e03301069b54


Do we have any idea yet as to who is coming as which characters or at what times? I will be at the stadium around 5am and the registration for walkers begins at 8am. The walk it self starts at 10ish and ends at 1pm.

We will have a spot set up for pictures and if you want to do lightsaber demonstrations, or anything of that nature. Please let me know & I will make sure there is a time set for that. Also, If anyone wants to be in on the first lap of walking with Isaac, he would love that.

Finally, we are having a thank you cook-out for volunteers & sponsors at our house after the walk and anyone that comes out from Terrapin Base or Old Line Garrison is more than welcome to join us.

My address is:

328 Regal Drive
Abingdon, MD 21009

Thanks again guys, we are getting excited now and I know that you being there has been a big draw!
