A Relay From A Galaxy Far Away
Posted by Shelby Stiner on Jul 11, 2013 - 9:51:41 AM

SANTA MONICA—The city will be visited by visitors from a galaxy far away on Friday, July 12.

“Star Wars” and Comic-Con enthusiasts will travel through the city as a part of the second annual Course of the Force Relay.

The eight-day Olympic style torch-relay, which involves a light-saber instead of a torch, began on Tuesday, July 9 in Northern California and will end on July 16 in San Diego.

Peter Levin, CEO of Nerdist Industries and Course of the Force creator, said he wanted to extend the Comic-Con experience and thought a light-saber relay in partnership with Lucasfilm would be a perfect event.

The race not only promotes “Star Wars,” but builds excitement for Comic-Con International and raises money for the Make-A-Wish foundation. According to Levin, the child-friendly nature of a light-saber relay inspired the idea to select a child-focused charity and one hundred percent of the registration proceeds are donated to the foundation.

Last year the relay raised $100,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation which allowed the foundation to grant 1000 wishes.

The Santa Monica portion of the relay will begin at 1 p.m. at Sunset Boulevard and the Pacific Coast Highway. A “Con-vial” will begin at noon on the Santa Monica Pier with live music beginning at 4:30 p.m.
