Twelve-year-old plans to run marathons on all seven continents

LA PUENTE, Calif. – What did you do for your thirteenth birthday?

Well, one California teen is hoping to break a world record.

Blanca Ramirez is trying to become the youngest female to run marathons on all seven continents.

Blanca’s already done three in North America, Africa and Asia.

Next up, South America.

She plans to do the rest all before her thirteenth birthday.

But for Blanca it’s more than just a personal goal.

She’s running to raise money for Operation Smile, a charity that provides free surgeries to kids with facial deformities.

Now, that’s what you call going the extra mile.
