On Sunday, December 8th, 744 jinglers went Bling-ling All The Way at the 2019 Jingle All the Way 3K.
The perfect event to get in the holiday spirit, Jingle All The Way brings individuals with and without intellectual disabilities together at the Special Olympics New Jersey Sports Complex to kick off the holiday season! The event is famous for its festive theme every year. 2019 did not disappoint with BLINGLE ALL THE WAY!
Jingle All The Way 3K is broken into 2 sessions – one in the morning for the early-bird jinglers and one in the evening for the night-owl jinglers. While shining, lit up, glittered, and sparkling, jinglers raced, walked, and jingle-jogged their way around the jolly volunteer-lined course and then headed back inside the complex for a “Super Fantastical Post-Run Party” in the morning and a “Majorly Awesome Post-Run Party” in the evening.
In total, the event raised over $46,000 for the 26,000+ Special Olympics New Jersey athletes! A VERY Blingle-ly THANK YOU to all who participated and volunteered to make it another successful event!
