Elementary school students from 15 schools around the county joined with Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary School students and staff recently for the third annual Chelsea King Invitational Mile.

More than 170 students participated in the event, which attracted qualifying students from around the county. Superintendent Bill Kowba was on hand for the May 31 event, which honors the memory of King, a local high school student and avid runner who was murdered in 2010.

The event raises funds for the Chelsea's Light Foundation. It is organized by Lindbergh/Schweitzer staff members Mary Lou Baranowski, Roger Drews, Julie Harris and others at the Clairemont campus.
Students compete by grade level. For more information, see the event's website.
