Photographer Seth Kushner came to photograph Nikolas for an upcoming article in Sports Illustrated Kids! Thanks, Seth, and his assistant, Kathleen, for coming out. Nikolas had such a great time! We really appreciate SI Kids sharing Nikolas's story
We love TOMS! Nikolas is featured on their community blog. Thanks so much for sharing Nikolas's story - you guys are awesome! Oh, by the way, he's running the world in his TOMS Eyewear! Check it out:
Nikolas had an awesome weekend beginning with the Runner's World running event. He was so lucky to meet amazing and inspiring people like the Boston Marathon race director, David McGillivray, Altra Founder Golden Harper—this year's RW event sponsor—author Scott Douglas, and others who were full of support and encouragement for Nikolas's efforts. And of course, it's always great to see "Uncle" Bart Yasso, RW Chief Running Officer—he always greets Nikolas with a smile and kind words.
Today Nikolas participated in his first 5k race walk and he did a fantastic job! When he arrived at the competition, he met Max, a friendly dog and his owner, who was very kind. When she learned about Nikolas's effort to help kids in need, she immediately dug into her pocket and gave a donation to Nikolas! Another wonderful person helping to keep children warm!
Do you remember the weekly reader magazine in elementary school? Well, Nikolas is featured in this week's 4th grade edition of Scholastic! He's included in an article that questions whether children are too young to run long distances. But as far as Nikolas's segment goes, it's all positive—he's very happy, very healthy, and helping lots of kids too! Check it out: http://sni.scholastic.com/SN4/10_07_13_SN4/book#/4
