Preparations under way for annual Finish Chelsea's Run 5K

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Thousands of runners are expected to lace up their sneakers for an annual run that continues to inspire a lot of San Diegans.

Preparations are in full swing for Saturday's Finish Chelsea's Run 5K in Balboa Park. The run is named for Chelsea King, who was murdered five years ago, and raises money for the Chelsea's Light Foundation Scholarship Fund.

This year the foundation paired up with the Girl Scouts, an organization Chelsea's parents say was close to her heart.

"That's really where she learned to find her voice. It was the first place she learned that her voice mattered so to have this come full circle like this is incredible," Chelsea's mother Kelly King said.

You can register for the run Saturday morning in Balboa Park beginning at 6:30 a.m.
