Give to the Protection of USA Athletes and Olympians

Some new, some returning, these young lives will be changed forever by the glory and gold of being an Olympian.   But for some, the journey to gold comes at a price.

That's equivalent to the collective dismissal of over eleven soccer teams, discarded as collateral for their pursuit of the Olympic dream. Lasso Safe's tool, Sports Wellness Platform (SWP), applies the science…

Lasso Safe Newsletter – February 2024

The 2024 Summer Olympics torch will be lit in five months, passed in a unique relay, hand-in-hand from country to country, athlete to athlete.

We have all read about the price paid by champions such as Joanne Reid and Aly Raisman; but have we, as family, friends and colleagues, done enough to change this year's news reports or will Survivor headlines continue to dim the glory of the games?

Sports safety is personal for Lasso Safe co-founder

The voice on the other line sounded thoughtful and absolute. "I am the State Attorney now, but I used to be a prosecutor for sexual abuse victims.
