Come support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the Memphis Comic Expo. The 501st Legion will be hosting their Blast-A-Trooper fundraiser activity to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Saturday, October 22nd and Sunday, October 23rd. After participants make a donation of any amount, they will be allowed to wield a Nerf blaster to bring barrage upon the 501st Legion’s costumed members. After blasting the Empires finest, the participants are allowed to take a photo with the Imperial troopers. So come out to Memphis Comic Expo to join in on the fun for all ages and support the research and treatment to children in need through St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
