Darren is currently in intensive care at Maryland's Washington County Hospital. His injuries are extensive, when he was admitted Darren had a collapsed lung, seven broken ribs, five broken vertebrae, a broken hand, and a broken collarbone.

Bootcamp to benefit Darren "D-train" Kauffman

by JandKLarson (Apr. 4, 2007)
Our team is hosting a Bootcamp this Saturday, the proceeds of which, will go to benefit injured speedskater Darren "D-Train" Kauffman. Those of you who post to the Training Log may recall that I've posted about past bootcamps, which our team has once a month as fundraisers for the team. Darren Kauffman is a world class speedskater who was in a serious car accident in the beginning of March. He broke his collarbone, a wrist, punctured a lung, broke ribs, and most seriously, broke 5 vertebrae in his back. Darren has been a member of the US Junior World Speedskating team and over the years has been sponsered by K2/Empire, Mogema, Wolf Racing, and this year he was signed to skate for Hyper. He was coached by Patty Leazier, our team's Head-head coach of Fast Forward (our club is a branch of Fast Forward) for years. In recent years, while still coached by Patty, he skated for Frenchtown Speed and their Senior 4-man relay team won at Indoor Nationals a number of times. Here is a picture from last year's nationals, when they won the title again.
