More than 650 jinglers brought the aloha to the annual Jingle All The Way 3K!
An event for all ages, Jingle All The Way brings individuals with and without disabilities together at the Special Olympics New Jersey Sports Complex to kick-off the holiday season. The event is famous for a changing dress code every year. The 2018 theme: luau!
Jingle All The Way 3K is broken into 2 sessions – one in the morning for early birds-of-paradise and another in the evening for those night Hawaiian short-eared owls. On Sunday, December 2, jinglers raced, walked, hula-ed and limboed their way around the jolly volunteer-lined course and then headed back inside the complex for a family-friendly holiday luau.
A little rain can’t stop the jinglin’! We’re at the SONJ Sports Complex today for the annual Jingle All The Way 3K!

Despite the dreary weather, rain would not stop these participants from doing their thing! In total, the event raised more than $40,000 for Special Olympics New Jersey athletes.
Mahalo to everyone who supported and participated Jingle All The Way to make it another successful event this year!
One comment on “Bringing in the Holiday Season, Hawaiian Style”
This was the first year my son participated – he ran in the morning session. He had a blast in spite of the weather. All of the runners, spectators, and volunteers were in such good spirits. A truly wonderful event. We hope to participate next year. Congratulations on a successful event for a more than worthy cause.
