)-- Leaving the anchorwoman "speechless", Chmiel described his next 155 mile ultra-marathon in the deadly and treacherous Australian outback. The latest event by Racing the Planet is set to begin April 25th. Chmiel will be running this race just days after surgery.
Families who face daily obstacles in an effort to keep their children thriving and healthy are learning about George Chmiel and his Quest for Luci. Twitter and Facebook pages are coming alive with mentions of this young Bank of America/Merrill Lynch hero. So who is George Chmiel and what is he doing?
Chmiel is running to raise awareness about children with medical conditions impacting their growth. Contrary to public opinion, children do not always "simply" grow. There are hundreds of medical conditions which hinder a child's grow ranging from serious issues such as brain tumors, to minor and easily treated issues such as hormone imbalances. Money raised by Chmiel's efforts benefit The MAGIC Foundation.
