6th Annual 5K Walk/Run

This year our 5K is going VIRTUAL!!! Click here to sign up.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 5th annual 5K walk/run. With the community rally around the family and friends of Jane who you have really showed your support. This year has been a difficult one for our community. However, we have proven that PRIDE and PURPOSE can get us through anything. With COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions in effect we are making this year’s run VIRTUAL . All registrants receive a commemorative face mask.  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.

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.

REGISTRATION OPEN THROUGH SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 20TH


Foundation Impact

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.  In appreciation for all that Dr. Polite did for Jane.

We have also given out numerous scholarships to many young adults from the Sandburg and St. Michael community.  Look to our Scholarship winners to learn more about them and their goals to continue living in the spirit of Jane.
