[Photo Story]: Star Wars Characters Pay A Visit To THON 2017

Some Star Wars favorites stopped by the floor during some THON 2017 down time. Their appearance certainly shook things up and gave everyone on the floor some energy. During their time on the floor, Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers took some time to pose with volunteers, dancers, and THON children alike.
