What We Do

Special Olympics Ohio provides a lifetime of opportunities to athletes of all ages, at no cost to them, through the transformative power of sport.

Many people are surprised to learn that our core programs of Sports, Unified Champion Schools, Healthy Athletes, and Athlete Leadership go beyond sporting events, to drive social change that enables whole community participation for people with intellectual disabilities.

A Grassroots Community

Special Olympics Ohio encompasses the power and joy of sport for athletes to connect with and contribute to their communities – all while improving their physical fitness, leadership skills, and sense of wellbeing. Join the movement today as an athlete, coach, volunteer, unified partner, law enforcement officer, or corporate sponsor to help create a more inclusive Ohio for all.

Special Olympics Has Been Changing Lives And Attitudes Since 1968.
