Family volunteers to help out Park City schools
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Tim and Joanna Chesley of Park City lead the Running with Ed relay race fundraiser for the Park City Education Foundation. The event takes a year of planning and involves a couple of thousand of people, and annually it raises about $130,000 for schools. "They wake their children up early on the big day and say, 'It's Running with Ed day!' the way most of us say, 'It's Christmas Day!' to our kids," said Jennifer Billow, spokeswoman for the foundation.

Their whole family also pays for, cooks, serves and cleans up at a barbecue for 30 or more they auction off at local events. The parents also volunteer at their children's school and other schools in the district. —
