About the project

#steveleefightback

As many in the community will be aware Olympic Skiing legend Steve Lee suffered a massive stroke at home in Falls Creek in early September. Steve is a three time Olympian and the second ever Australian to claim victory on the Alpine World Cup circuit. He is a loved and respected member of the skiing community and he desperately needs your help.

Steve is currently in a rehab facility in Wangaratta and is paralysed on his left side. He will need ongoing treatment, support and assistance to get him back to something that resembles a normal life again.

Steve will need significant financial support in order for this to happen and Snow Australia is calling on the broader snow community to help out.  

All donations made through the Australian Sports Foundation portal are tax deductible. We urge you to support Steve and to encourage others to do the same.

After you donate follow Steve's progress on his 'Support Tribe' facebook page.

Donations can be made by credit card, EFT or by cheque. Please note if donating by EFT from overseas you will need to use the Swift Code: WPACAU25. For more information on donating via EFT or cheque, click here.

    Steve, i had the pleasure to join one of your back country ski tours at Falls Creek which was the best experience I have ever had skiing. You are an amazing person and this experience is one I often talk about with friends and people i meet when talking about skiing. Wishing you the best recovery possible and I am sure we will see you on the mountain when you are ready.
