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 Sholarship winners to learn more about them and their goals to continue living in the spirit of Jane.


Team Registration

We are excited to have teams again this year!  You can join an existing one, or form a new one during the registration process.  This year, awards will be given out for the fastest team (this will be done through the top finishes in each age group on your team), the team with the most spirit and the loudest & proudest team.  So gather your friends and family together and enjoy the morning!

Sandburg Athletes:  Please join the team based on your Sandburg Team.  If your sport is not listed already, please create a team!  The Sandburg Athletic Team with the highest percentage of participants will win a pizza party (and bragging rights!).

Go Eagles!
