The annual Jingle All The Way 3K® brought people with and without disabilities together at the Special Olympics of NJ Sports Complex in Lawrenceville to raise funds and to have fun! Participants ran, walked and strolled either the 1K or the 3K, both of which started and ended at the Sports Complex, then made their way inside to kick off the holiday season. Jingle All The Way 3K has an annual tradition of a rotating dress-code, and this year, the event’s theme was “Jingle In Your Jammies,” meaning event participants ran in their most festive PJs.
Team Maria Passalaris was supported by AHEPA Trenton Chapter #72 and members of her parish, St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Hamilton, NJ. Team Maria was made up of 102 members, one of the largest teams to ever participate. Maria was quoted as the “most magnetic Special Olympics athlete around”. Team Maria raised the most funds, reaching $12,835. Congratulations Team Maria!
