The Jane Neely 5K began 15 years ago as a tribute to Jane. Jane Neely was diagnosed with postpastrum cardiomyopathy after the birth of her second son in 1985. She received a heart transplant in 1988 and began work as an ambassador for donation for the Center for Organ Recovery and Education.
Neely passed away in June 2005 due to complications from her second heart transplant in April of that year. Proceeds from the race its first year went to benefit the Center for Organ Recovery and Education. In recent years, the proceeds have benefited various community groups, most recently raising more than $2,000 for the Shaler Area Backpack Initiative.
