A Birthday Gathering for Chelsea King



    Padres Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman Finds his Dream Team

    The Chelsea King family is inviting San Diegans to celebrate the slain Poway teenager's birthday with a Friday walk and run in Scripps Ranch.

    The event, announced on the Chelsea's Light Facebook page, will begin at Lake Miramar at 5 p.m. and honor the memory and legacy of King, who would be turning 19 years old.

    "Look for orange and blue balloons," the post said.

    King went missing on a run in February 2010 and was found murdered in early March.

    The tragedy and shock of her death brought the community together and inspired Chelsea's Law, which instituted a one-strike, life-in-prison policy for the most violent convicted sexual offenders.
