Community Partner and Sponsorship Opportunities

The Karen Weidinger Foundation's 2023 major event is the 18th Annual "Karen For A Kause" 5k Fun Run, 1 Mile Walk and Children's Mad Dash is to be held on Saturday May 13, 2023 at Frontier Park In Saint Charles. This event was created to raise awareness and support in the fight against breast cancer, as well as provide a place where families can gather, bring their children and have a great time! Come Have Fun...Come Give Hope!

Please consider becoming a sponsor at our upcoming event, which should draw over 1000 runners/walkers, spectators and volunteers. Your commitment demonstrates outstanding community support, while providing hope for breast cancer patients and their families.

Since it's inception, the Karen Weidinger Foundation (KWF), a 501(c)3 charity made up entirely of volunteers, has raised nearly $650,000, with each and every Dollar staying in the St. Charles community. Through a partnership with SSM and other breast cancer charities, we are able to provide patients "items of compassion" including, but not limited to, wings, post-mastectomy camisoles, quillos (a unique quilt/pillow combination), and yoga classes, just to name a few. In addition, we help provide meals, transportation and other financial needs that breast cancer patients so desperately need during their treatments. These items and programs are typically not covered by insurance and therefore are often not utilized by patients due to the added cost, even though they have been shown to improve the well-being of patients who have received them The KWF is pleased to provide these and many other items and programs to patients at NO COST.
