Richard Swanson, a 42-year-old soccer fan from Seattle, set out to dribble a ball all the way to Brazil in time for the World Cup next year, but just two weeks into his trip, he was hit by a truck and killed outside of Lincoln City, Oregon. Swanson was out to promote the One World Futbol Project, in Berkeley, California, which donates soccer balls to people in developing countries. Very sad indeed.
