Four children from the Make-A-Wish Foundation joined forces with four celebrities including former San Diego Padre David Eckstein, Alison Haislip, Alex Albrecht and Ashley Eckstein as they ran through “Course of the Force,” an Olympic torch style relay with an actual LEGO® light saber!

Baden from Carlsbad, Robert from Solana Beach, Zachary from Encinitas and Camille from Solana Beach experienced rides throughout the course including the all-new Pirate Reef, Sky Cruiser, Build-A-Raft River, LEGO TECHNIC® Coaster and Knights’ Tournament. The relay run concluded in LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland.

Course of the Force is traveling down the Southern California coast July 7-11, just days leading up to the San Diego Comic-Con International®. Proceeds from the event benefit the Make-A-Wish® chapters of San Diego, Greater Los Angeles, Orange County and the Inland Empire.
