Nine-year-old runs in the cold to keep others warm [audio]

    Nine-year-old Nikolas Toocheck continued his quest to complete a marathon on each continent this week, finishing the White Continent Marathon in Antarctica.

    Nikolas, of Pocopson Township near Longwood Gardens, has set a goal to raise $1,000,000 for his chosen charity, Operation Warm, which provides winter coats to children in need.  NewsWorks Tonight Host Dave Heller spoke with Nik and his mother, Tara, upon his return from Antarctica.
