Broken Bodies began as a collective movement of like minded individuals with a passion for pushing past the limits of what others told us we could not do. We strive to inspire and be inspired by those who embrace the Broken Bodies Mantra, "If it Ain't broken try harder!!". Broken Bodies Nation was created to encourage and welcome others into our community. Broken Bodies Nation participates in activities and raises charitable funds to help those that encompass what they can do with Broken Bodies!!! Are YOU Broken?

El Commodore (A.K.A. "EC") was "broken in", back in 2009 with a mountain biking accident in which he separated his shoulder and bruised his sternum. Since then, he has continued to pursue opportunities that could potentially cause further damage. His interest include OCR, Mountain Biking, open water activities, and anything in remote locations (camping, hiking, photography, etc...). The drive for his charitable donation is near and dear to his heart. Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a hereditary disease that runs in his wife's family, affecting not only his wife but Father-in-law, brother-in-law, and his youngest son. It is the drive to help raise funds for PKD to help find a cure is his motivation for the Broken Bodies Nation. And if you want to know how he got the moniker, El Commodore; buy him a Rum 'n Coke, he'll tell you the story.
Kathy, A.K.A. Voice of Reason, Lead Triage, and Team Mom depending on the scenario, is a Broken Body by association. Spending the last 25 years with Todd and Mom to volleyball playing and adventure seeker Kylie, she has had to "pick up the broken pieces" on many occasions. Whether it be acting as Lead Triage grabbing ice packs, scrubbing asphalt out of road rash, taping up an injury, getting yet another call that starts with "I'm okay, but....", or acting as the Voice of Reason and occasionally having to reel the team in, Kathy has witnessed more than most. While she is not quite as extreme as the rest of the team, she does like a good adventure. She enjoys extreme zip-lining, snorkeling, races, and playing with exotic animals as well as her five rescued animals. Her charitable donations will be to Operation Freedom Paws, an organization that empowers veterans and others with disabilities by teaching them to train their own dogs and providing them with service dogs free of charge.
