Gymnastics Doctor Autism Foundation
Dr. Larry Nassar and his wife Stefanie founded the nonprofit public charity “Gymnastics Doctor Autism Foundation”. Throughout the country, gymnastics clubs are helping children with disabilities like autism by having them gain the therapeutic musculoskeletal and inner strengths that gymnastics can provide to all involved. Part of the Foundation’s goals is to promote and support gymnastics as a part of the therapeutic care of Autistic children. The Twistars Invitational is proud to once again support the Gymnastics Doctor Autism Foundation. Remember, “Autism is not a problem to be solved, but rather a potential to be realized.”
