One Boy, Taking One Million Steps, Raising One Dollar for Each Step & Bringing Warmth to Children

Nikolas Toocheck ran his first 5k when he was only five years old, mostly on the shoulders of his dad.  At age six, he ran his first race solely on his own two feet and hasn’t stopped running since!  Now at age nine, he has completed over 80 racing events with distances spanning from 1 mile to a half marathon (13.1 miles).  His goal is to complete a marathon on each of the seven continents – and he may very well be the youngest runner to accomplish this!  

Nikolas has launched his very own philanthropic campaign called “Running the World for Children.”  This campaign will raise money for Operation Warm to provide new winter coats to children in need.  Learn more about Nikolas’ story and support his efforts by sponsoring some of his steps by clicking here.
