“Star Wars” relay race for charity to kick off Comic Con again this year

Last year, “Star Wars” fans raced from Santa Monica to San Diego, in costume, to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation.
This year, this Lucas-sanctioned event (he buys into most charitable uses of his trademarks like this) will start at the Ranch George Built — Skywalker Ranch, north of San Francisco. That’s an added bonus for fans who’ve never been there, and a great photo op for LucasFilm, which is banking on a whole new J.J. Abrams “Star Wars” trilogy to refresh this blockbuster franchise.
