Exciting news! Nikolas is featured in an upcoming special called "Going the Distance" on CBS, airing this Sunday, July 17 at 3pm (EDT). He's among an extraordinary, inspiring crowd! Congratulations, Nikolas, on your dedication and commitment to help others. Please watch. :)
Happy Independence Day Weekend! Nikolas celebrated with an overnight run in Georgia at Camp Merrill Army Ranger Base. That's right: running 26.2 in the dark, with stars as his only light! He finished at 4am. He said he's happy he ran a nighttime marathon, but is glad "now I never have to do that again!" He's pretty tired but, as always, is motivated by his commitment to help kids in need. Congratulations, Nikolas! State #31complete! :)
Nikolas runs in Illinois this weekend continuing his effort to help kids in need! Please consider helping to provide the gift of sight to a child. What a way to change the world! www.seva.org/nikolas
Congratulations to Nikolas's sister, Thea! As a Youth Runner Blogger, she had the amazing opportunity to interview Evanna Lynch. And what an awesome job she did!

Hey guys, in honor pot Nikolas's half-way mark, how about a donation to celebrate? Consider $25, $250, $2,500--you get the idea. Of course, any amount would help provide the gift of sight to kids in need. Nikolas is doing the hard part; a donation is just a few clicks away. smile emoticon www.seva.org/nikolas to edit.
Nikolas completed his 25th state today! Woohoo, Nikolas, you're half way there! This was a tough one; though it looks beautiful and sunny, he and his dad almost got blown to Kansas (which wouldn't be so bad, since that's where they're running tomorrow)! His dad described it this way: "When the wind is blowing 65 mph, a twig feels like a mighty oak!" 🌬💨🌪
As Nikolas is set to run his 25th state marathon on Thursday in Oklahoma, he would like to dedicate the race to Dr Brent Weigner. Dr. Weigner has been a huge inspiration in athletics, academics and is a pretty good cowboy too!
Happy birthday, Nikolas! Watch out world; he's a teenager now😁 Since he was 9 years old, Nikolas has been running marathons to raise money for kids in need. How about making a donation in honor of his birthday? It would mean the world to him. Www. Seva.org/Nikolas
