Pitch in for Jeremy Lusk

by

Most people have already heard or read about FMXer Jeremy Lusk’s horrific accident at the X-Nights contest in Costa Rica over the weekend. Lusk under-rotated while performing a backflip and slammed into the ground head first.

Now through the quick work of the Internet, a couple of Web sites have been set up to give regular updates on Lusk’s condition and to take donations for an emergency fund set up for Lusk.

The latter has been established through the Athlete Recovery Fund. Anybody interested in making a donation to the fund can go to THIS LINK HERE and click on the “make a donation” button. Starting today all donations made through the Web site will go directly to Lusk’s care.

From a release about the site:

Financial arrangements are being put into place to pay for the Medi-Vac international air transportation that Jeremy will need once he is stable and can be transferred to a leading United States-based Head Trauma Center.

A close family friend has also set up a blog which has regular updates on Lusk’s condition. Go to the Pray for Jeremy Lusk blog.

And of course, a video of the horrifying crash is already up at YouTube. Warning: it’s a pretty disturbing thing to watch.

    He was one of the Superstars of motoX, he was an exceptional rider. Today is a really sad day for motoX. Lusk had awesome abilities and his riding will be greatly missed. RIP Jeremy Lusk.

    All my thoughts for Jeremy in his loved one’s hearts, and a poem inspired by my son and by Jeremy, a wonderful young boy.

    Jeremy (Alexandra Páez S—San José, Costa Rica)

    I have seen his body return
    From a land of owls and opals.
    I had sent him away there.
    Today the soil hurts and
    My Soul has healed him back.

  5. Alexandra Páez Says:

    Great peace of mind and heart to know that one could offer some spiritual and emotional support to you and your family. I subscribe to the little heartfelt poem once again, and wish you the best–I didn’t know Jeremy at all but I knew from that sad moment and know that he will continue to be special and important to many people from where he is. Peace to you 🙂
