Gahanna Special Olympics serves approximately 85 athletes with intellectual disabilities from the local Gahanna community. We offer eight core sports – Basketball, Bowling, Flag Football, Golf, Soccer, Swimming, Track & Field, and Unified Volleyball and training for athletes eight years of age and up.


We are an all-volunteer organization with approximately 75 volunteers, which include many of our parents & guardians, as well as community members and teachers from local school districts.

Although we are a subsidiary of Special Olympics Ohio, our funding is 100% self-generated and we rely solely on the generosity of others by both their financial donations as well as the gift of their time.
