The action sports world remains stunned but in support of freestyle motocross star Jeremy Lusk, who remains hospitalized and in critical condition after suffering a horrific weekend crash during a competition in Costa Rica.

An emergency fund to help pay for medical care has been established and is accepting donations. Those able to help can visit the Athlete Recovery Fund website and click on the donation button.

All donations made via this website are earmarked specifically for Lusk's care. As soon as Lusk's condition stabilizes he will be transported to a U.S.-based head trauma center.

Lusk, of Temecula, is a beloved action sports figure and member of the Metal Mulisha team of riders. The latest report posted on the MM website: "Jeremy’s condition is critical and the latest we've heard is that he's out of surgery and they're waiting for the swelling to go down on his brain."
