Marathon race director will chat to support Martin W. Richard Foundation

Boston Marathon race director and endurance running veteran Dave McGillivray is hosting a live interactive video chat on April 4 for runners and running enthusiasts in order to raise money for the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation.

In the chat, McGillivray will share experiences from some of his most impressive feats and provide insight on what’s allowed him to be so effective at running so many miles. He’ll also be sharing tips about making the most out of your participation in an organized running event.

All contributions to McGillivray’s campaign will benefit the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation, which invests in education, athletics and community in honor of 7-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. The organization honors Martin’s message of “No more hurting people – peace.”

A donation of any size to the foundation gains the contributor entry into the video chat, which will take place on April 4 at noon EST, and the opportunity to ask McGillivray questions prior to the event or live during the event.

The Globe's Bella English recently spoke with McGillvray about the upcoming Boston Marathon and more.
