Nikolas ran in the Caesar Rodney Half-Marathon yesterday and had the pleasure of meeting Senator Tom Carper. The Senator spoke very highly of Nikolas and his efforts for raising awareness for children living in poverty. Thank you, Senator Carper! Oh, and Nikolas had a great time running too! :)
Happy birthday, Nikolas!! At his house, certain birthday traditions are followed like eating birthday cake for breakfast and opening a gift in the morning. Check out Nikolas's morning gift. The perfect runner's companion indeed! What do you suspect Nikolas thinks about his gift?
Nikolas's 11th birthday is tomorrow and guess what he would love for his birthday? More kids to have new warm snuggly OW coats, of course! Please donate today! Happy birthday, Nikolas!
This weekend Nikolas participated in the USATF Indoor National Championship and was so lucky to have met two amazing Olympians. Gold-medalist, Bernard Rollen Williams III approached Nikolas saying that he'd heard about Nikolas's campaign and was very supportive of him taking the time to help others. Lacey O'Neal, Olympic pioneer who blazed a trail for equal opportunity in both gender and race, has helped others around the world through diplomatic service and the Peace Corps for decades. She told Nikolas she was very proud of him for helping others at such a young age and wished him the best. And finally, Nikolas became the USATF National Indoor Race Walk Champion for his age group. What a great weekend!
