501st Legion in Canada’s Capital Region

I just found there exists a chapter of the “501st Stormtrooper Legion” in Ottawa.

For those that aren’t aware, the 501st legion are a group of about 4,500 volunteers that dress up in Star Wars costumes and visit sick children at hospitals across 45 countries to bring them toys and smiles.

They are involved with the Max Keeping Foundation, the Ottawa Food Bank, and other local charities.

A worthwhile geeky cause for those interested…
