Nikolas Toocheck, 9-Year-Old Pennsylvania Boy, to Run Marathon in Antarctica for Charity

Nikolas Toocheck is pretty remarkable. Not only is the 9-year-old Pennsylvania boy running a marathon, but he’s doing it in Antarctica and he’s doing it to raise money for charity!

He told Bill Hemmer that his goal is to run marathons on all seven continents in an effort to raise money for Operation Warm, a charity started by his grandfather that provides coats to kids who can’t afford them.

Nikolas’ mom Tara Toocheck said that the thing she’s most proud of “is that he’s taking something that he loves so much and helping kids at the same time.”
