February 7, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The Foundation for Global Sports Development (GSD) will recognize the heroes of the Larry Nassar abuse tragedy for their courage in speaking up in the court room with GSD’s prestigious Humanitarian Award. The ceremony will be held in Los Angeles, California in April 2018.
As part of the award, GSD is donating $1 Million to create an educational program that will be led by the gymnasts as ambassadors. The new program will provide educational outreach focused on changing the culture of sport and preventing future cases of abuse in sports by educating parents, coaches and athletes about emotional, physical and sexual abuse.
