Injured snowmobiler Caleb Moore’s family raising funds for hospital bills

A website has been established to raise money for the hospital bills of injured snowmobiler Caleb Moore, who remains in critical condition with an unspecified brain complication as a result of last Thursday’s crash at the Winter X Games.

“The fans, friends, and family of Caleb Moore are uniting to raise money to help with his hospital bills. Please show your support!” says the intro on the GiveForward website.

“Caleb Moore is an inspiration to us all and we want to support him and his family so they may stay strong during this difficult time. If you are not familiar with Caleb, he lives life to the fullest. The world knows Caleb as a brilliant freestyle rider, but his family and friends know him as a fun-loving and deeply loyal person. This is our chance to show Caleb and his family how much they mean to us all. Please give forward.”

As of Wednesday morning, less than a day after the site was established, $12,587 of the stated goal of $300,000 had been raised.

Rotation Management and Chelsea Lawson, previously described as a family spokeswoman, organized the fundraiser, which ends May 28.
