Richard Swanson had a dream. He wanted to dribble a soccer ball 10,000 miles to Brazil in an effort to raise awareness for the One World Futbol Project, and also view the World Cup. Yesterday, he was struck by a pickup truck and killed.

Swanson once said of his journey:

“It will be a trip of a lifetime where I will push myself further than I ever thought possible.”

Unfortunately he won’t be able to complete the physical journey, but as many have said, he made it to Brazil in our minds.
