All of us from the Jane Memorial Foundation would like to thank all of you for helping us raise money and keep the spirit of Jane alive. The 3rd annual Walk/Run was another success on a gorgeous day. We had a wonderful turn out of family and friends both old and new. The showing from Carl Sandburg was amazing with students who never got the chance to meet Jane stepping up and organizing teams for the race. That is a perfect example of the Warrior’s Spirit.
To find your race time (runners only) please go to IT’S RACE TIME!!!
We would like to congratulate this year’s male winner Ethan Miranda-Gale and our female winner Alexandra Holdefer. Everyone is a winner though as everyone showed pride, determination and support for their community and this foundation. Please look to our events page for all of our age group winners and congratulate a friend.

The winners of the 2017 Jane Caliendo Memorial Foundation Scholarship have been announced.
After much deliberation over the many over-achieving, highly qualified leaders of the Sandburg Athletic community the committee awarded Marty Blake and Aidan Farley the scholarships. They both exhibit the unique set qualities that Jane exhibited throughout her life and her teaching. They exhibit these qualities not only throughout their sport but throughout their community as well.
On behalf of the Jane Caliendo Memorial Foundation and the Scholarship committee we want to wish all applicants and the rest of the senior class the best in their collegiate adventures.
Because of you……
A brand new Video Board and Timing System were installed over last summer. This could not have been done without everyone’s hard work, dedication and donations. Current and future students, faculty, swimmers and families will always be able to remember Jane and live with Pride and Purpose.
On Behalf of the Jane Caliendo Foundation committee we wanted to say thank you for everything you have done this year. Whether it was a donation or helping with an event or simply helping a neighbor, you made a difference.
This year has been a successful one with the Dedication of the new Jane Caliendo Aquatics Center at Sandburg. Over the summer the new Aquatics Center received a donation of a new Video Board and Timing System. We had another successful 5K walk/run on a beautiful day. Donations have been generous all year and for that we Thank you.
Keep coming to our website for future updates on our annual 5K and donations opportunities. We will also be updating you on our scholarship winners; where they are and how they are living like Warriors.
May the New Year bring you joy and happiness.
Carl Sandburg’s Pool has officially been dedicated to Jane.
Jane’s spirit, encouragement and inspiration will forever be in the heart of Sandburg. Current students remember her and Future student will learn about her. She pushed her students to go the extra mile; to think outside the box. The new Aquatics Center reminds everyone one person can touch and change so many lives.
