Some kids like to play video games. And other kids like to get out and run. But 9-year-old Nikolas Toocheck likes to get out and run - a lot!
He has already established himself as a record breaking runner, completing more than 100 races.
The fourth grader tells FOX 29 he's not running just for fun. He is running towards a goal of taking a million steps and raising a $1 million for his grandfather's charity.
He tells FOX, "I'm running a marathon on each of the seven continents, supporting Operation Warm. It's a non-profit organization that provides new coats to kids who can't afford it."
He has estimated it will take a million steps to run seven marathons. A marathon is 26.2 miles.
His first full marathon took place in Delaware and next month, he plans to run his second marathon in Antarctica. Many parents would say that a 9-year-old is too young to be running long distance races, and it could be too demanding physically on the child.
However, Toocheck's parents say they keep a close eye on their son's health. His parents say he's seen pediatricians and pediatric cardiologists and undergone EKG's and several other tests to ensure his body is handling all the running.
What do you think? Should a 9-year-old be running so many marathons?
