Let It Shine

Balboa Park came alive on March 1, as participants in the Finish Chelsea’s Run lined up at the starting line to prepare for a 5K run/walk in honor of Chelsea King. The event was hosted by the Chelsea’s Light Foundation, in partnership with Girl Scouts San Diego, who worked together to keep Chelsea’s memory shining bright. Hundreds of participants were in attendance, with some carrying Chelsea’s favorite blossom, the sunflower. The winning runners were Joaquin Martinez de Pinillos for the men, and Angela Ortlieb for the women. The Chelsea’s Light Foundation enriches the community through their Changemakers and Sunflower Scholarship Program. For more information on the Foundation visit www.chelseaslight.org.
