ASPEN – A fund was established Tuesday to help pay the medical expenses for Caleb Moore, a snowmobiler injured Thursday at the Winter X Games in Aspen.

The fund’s website is, according to Chelsea Lawson, a spokeswoman for the Moore family. She said the family received numerous inquires from friends and fans on how they could help.

Moore, 25, is in critical condition at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction. He was performing a flip Thursday when his sled’s skis clipped the landing, and he went over the handlebars. The snowmobile rolled over him. He walked off the course with help and went to Aspen Valley Hospital with a concussion.

While there, he developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to Grand Junction for surgery Friday. His family said Sunday that Moore then had a secondary complication involving his brain.
