13-year-old Nikolas Toocheck is running a marathon in each of the 50 U.S. states to raise money for the Seva Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides critical vision care to people in need around the world.
Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2016 -- On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, Nikolas Toocheck will share his story on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel: The Compassionate Life at 3pm pacific time with Dr. Brittany King.
Through his Running the World for Children: Stateside campaign, Nikolas's goal is to help children in need receive the gift of sight. Funds raised will support Seva's pediatric programs to prevent blindness and preserve eyesight. With 38 years of experience, Seva is a leading innovator in the delivery of vital sight-saving eye care services. Seva's programs have a special effort to reach children, the most vulnerable members of our human community.
The idea of running to help others is not new to Toocheck. Already the youngest person in history to complete a marathon on each continent (at age 11), Toocheck started a philanthropic campaign to help children in need called Running the World for Children when he was just 9 years old. His continent campaign raised funds for the non-profit Operation Warm, providing new winter coats to children in need.
To date, he has raised approximately $45,000 to help children in need. To help change the life of a child through Nikolas's Stateside campaign, please go to http://www.nikrunstheworld.com and donate today.
