Help for the Larry Nassar Victims

What started with individual voices and grew into an army of women is now creating massive change across the gymnastics community.

Welcome to a movement.

Saving Our Survivors has three goals:

1.  ​To reduce the stigma connected to assault/abuse by providing education and resources

2. ​To link survivors to trauma savvy therapists

3. To provide financial support for anyone impacted by the actions or inactions of the former​ osteopathic​ doctor now known as inmate Nassar.

The purpose of the Saving Our Survivors fund is to make available financial resources to pay for psychological counseling/psychotherapy. We are funded exclusively by donations and the campaign is run by volunteers.

For questions, suggestions, or to access support, please reach out to Paul Ziert [paul(at)intlgymnast(dot)com] or Jessica Steyers [[email redacted](dot)com]. You can also connect with us via FaceBook, at

As we recognize that every trauma survivor heals at their own pace, we don't require that you are connected to a legal case or have publicly come forward.

Paul Ziert is the publisher of International Gymnast magazine and coached the  University of Oklahoma men's gymnastics team to two NCAA titles.
