…and we spotted the 501st Legion #BadGuysDoingGood

Members of the 501st Midwest Garrison visited the pediatric oncology ward at the Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. They handed out toys and coloring books to a lot of brave kids. During their visit in the community center, one little girl had to go back to her room for part of her treatment, and she asked if a Stormtrooper could come with her. She took his hand and led him down the hall, and he stayed at her side the whole time she was away.


A big congratulations to these recent Sideshow Social Contests winners!
