Pacifica teen chosen to run torch relay for Vancouver Olympics

Laura Webber

The 16-year-old Pacifica resident has been honored by Coca-Cola North America as one of 20 torchbearers for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Webber was nominated by her peers and selected by the company because of her “positive living” and “extraordinary efforts,” which include founding the 4-H Million Trees Project that has resulted in the planting of 66,000 trees.
