6th Annual VIRTUAL 5 K Walk/Run


Although we will not be having the event in person, we still have a lot in store for you. Social Distancing will not keep us from having a great time this year.

Please consider registering and continuing your support of our cause.  All registrants receive a commemorative face mask.  Look back for information on how to get your race goodies. Registration will remain open until the scheduled race day (September 13th, 2020).  At that time, all registered participants will have the opportunity to complete a 5K in the safety and comfort of their own neighborhood.  You will receive an email that day with instructions on submitting your time.  You will then be ranked and scored much like a traditional run!  You can do your 5K on September 13th, or you will have 1 week to complete the 5K on your own.

The Jane Caliendo Memorial Foundation hopes to raise funds to provide scholarships to Sandburg athletes as well as providing resources to Orland Park and the surrounding community.

The Jane Caliendo Memorial Foundation will once again pledge part of our net proceeds to the University of Chicago Medicine.  More specifically, to the clinical research performed by Dr. Blase Polite.  Dr. Polite specifically treated Jane through her illness and the Jane Caliendo Memorial Foundation, in appreciation for all that Dr. Polite did for Jane, would like to support his innovative research in his battle against colon cancer.

The Jane Caliendo Memorial Foundation is a non-for-profit foundation which strives to provide resources to Carl Sandburg students and surrounding community so that more warriors with the Jane Caliendo spirit, pride and purpose can be fostered through high school and given the skills, resiliency and pride to make a difference in our community as adults.

Even though we won’t be together this year, we hope you will consider signing up and participating or donating to our event.  Thanks to all of our past participants and sponsors over the last 5 years; we can’t do this without YOU.
