Going Virtual for 2020! Social Distancing will not keep us from having a great time this year. Although we will not be having the event in person, we still have a lot in store for you.
Please consider registering and continuing your support of our cause. All registrants receive a commemorative face mask. 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.
Submitting Your Result
An important part of this Virtual Race is submitting your time so that you can see how you rank, much like a traditional run. Beginning September 13th you will be able to submit your time. To submit your virtual time, click on the link below. (Note: link will not work and you cannot submit a result prior to Sept 13) By your name, click EDIT TIME. You can submit results from Sept 13 - Sept 20. Final results will be available at the same link Sept 21.
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.
All runners will be chip timed by Its Race Time, Inc. and your results will be streamed live during the race.
*Please note that Walkers will not be timed, so please make your selection as a runner or walker when signing up.
