Gliding Stars of Greater Toledo is an adaptive ice skating program for children and adults with disabilities. It is a National program founded by Elizabeth O'Donnell in 1994 in New York that is compromised of individual chapters that are responsible for all management and costs of the individual programs.
Through the help of parents of children and adults with disabilities, a Toledo Chapter was created in 2008. The program starts in September and the 40 skaters who are known as "Stars" meet each Sunday for one to one and half hours to skate with assistance from on ice volunteers and skating instructors. The program lasts six months and at the end of the program, the Stars along with their on ice volunteers and instructors perform a grand finale ice spectacular. There are group performances and solo skate performances by the Stars.
The cost for a skater to participate in the program averages $1500. However, Gliding Stars of Toledo only charges each skater $125. This allows many families to participate in the program at an affordable rate. In order to do this, Gliding Stars of Toledo must raise funds to make up the discount and also afford costs involved at the end of the program ice show.
