Upper Arlington Special Olympics

About Us

Co-Coordinator, Mike Borders

Mike started working with Special Olympics for the basketball season in 1992. He started with Dr. Pat Owens, who originally started the program. Mike was a volunteer basketball coach, and a couple years later started coaching track. As UASO continued to grow he added soccer and then softball to his coaching duties. Mike's long history and dedication has profoundly established & contributes to the ongoing success of Upper Arlington Special Olympics. Mike started working for the UA district as a custodian in March of 1988. He is now in the maintenance department as the district truck driver.

Co-Coordinator, Liam Curran

Liam Curran was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, so it's only right he receive degrees from both Columbus State and THE Ohio State University. Liam was an instructional assistant for Upper Arlington Schools for many years. He began volunteering with UASO his first year in the district, and his involvement increased as the seasons progressed. When not sharing laughs with our athletes, Liam spends his free time playing with his dog Bentley, attempting to play guitar, or doing anything with his best friend, Diane.

Volunteer Coordinator, Jean Crawford

Jean has been involved with UASO for about 12 years. Her son played Upper Arlington High School freshman football with one of our current UASO athletes. Jean and her family fell in love with and were inspired by all the athletes and their families. She has held the position of volunteer coordinator for the past several years. "My goal is to recruit volunteers who are committed to support our athletes as they improve their athletic skills, stay safe and have fun!" There are year round volunteer opportunities in a wide variety of sports and varied levels of time commitment.
