Countdown to Walk/Run  

Teams and Individuals

Select A Team:


Jog for Jill 5K walk/run and BBQ

Walk, jog or run.  Participate as an individual,  join a team or create a team. Congratulate the winner of the Jill Costello scholarship. Stick around for the post-run BBQ and entertainment!
During Jill’s fight, the Cal Community took action, and UC Berkeley continues to be on the forefront of lung cancer awareness and CHANGE. Together we will raise awareness and critical funds for patient services and clinical research projects while celebrating the strength of the community in a powerful, fun day filled with activities for everyone, music, entertainment, a run/walk and so much more.

The run/walk and post-run Award announcement will be held on the UC Berkeley campus at Kroeber Fountain, and will be followed by a celebratory BBQ at the Kappa house with live music and a raffle.


About Jill's Legacy:

Jill’s Legacy is a young adult advisory board of the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. Jill’s Legacy was created in honor of Jill Costello, and all the other young individuals effected by lung cancer. Jill’s Legacy advocates are out to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer amongst Generation Y. As the next generation of donors, doctors, participants, and advocates, this group has the power to change the face of this disease and let people know that ANYONE can get lung cancer.

Each step you take is one step closer to the Cure!
