Nikolas is on his way! Good luck, Nikolas! Go set that world record by Running the World for Children! He packed his newest favorite pre-race breakfast food—Waffatopia's Cinnamon & Vanilla Waffles! He picked up a bunch fresh out of the oven for his trip. Thanks to founders Andrea and Brian; you Chief Waffatiers rock!
Nikolas spend the day yesterday doing school work, packing for his 7th continent run, and celebrating with one of his favorite running buddies; it was his dog Cosmo's birthday! <3
Nikolas is so excited to have Waffatopia's support as he gets ready to run his 7th continent! Nikolas has very particular tastes and the Indian diet doesn't really "fit" in to his daily food intake. So he asked if he can take these awesome waffles along with him to carb-up for the run! Waffatopia enthusiastically offered to provide a few dozen to take along!
Today Nikolas did the ALS ice bucket challenge! Thank you to Sharon De Sousa and his sister Thea for nominating him! He nominates his dad and his friends Katie Hughes and Brandon Gage. Sorry about the video quality--a mischievous being splashed the camera. :)
Nikolas had a great time helping out with his UPS buddies at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games yesterday. Thanks for inviting him, UPS. He is pictured here with Tony Heath, one of our favorite people! Nikolas was honored to meet such an amazing group of people.
Thanks, Lauren Lipton and CBS! We really appreciate your support! http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2014/08/17/positively-philadelphia-young-people-volunteering/_
Altra got Nikolas Toocheck through another marathon with great feeling feet! Despite the rainy, muddy conditions the entire run, his feet were happy. These are his clothes and shoes from his 6th marathon (Europe) of Running the World for Children - Nikolas's campaign to run a marathon on each continent to help children in need through Operation Warm. Thanks again Altra! Your shoes are the BEST!! Number 7 coming up to earn a world record of being the youngest person to complete a marathon on each continent! And Altra Running will be there with him every step of the way! Check out Nikolas's story and/or make a donation to support kids in need: www.nikrunstheworld.com
