In it's sixth year, Finish Chelsea's Run aspires to be bigger and better than the first year, which attracted over 3,500 who came to support the memory of Chelsea King, her family and Chelsea's Light Foundation.

The 5k walk/run event promises an expanded family festival complete with "Chelsea-esque" activities and a community-centric atmosphere.  Proceeds from Finish Chelsea's Run serve as the primary fundraiser for the Chelsea's Light Foundation Sunflower Scholorship Fund.

2016's event proceeds helped award 10 scholorships to college-bound teens, who embody a "service over self" character.

NBC 7 San Diego is honored to serve as the television media partner for Finish Chelsea's Run.  Our team will be there to support, we hope to see you there Saturday, March 5th 2016.
