A Chat with Dave McGillivray to Give Back

The finish line has been painted...
The banners are hung...
The runners are sitting pretty on taper island...
but there is someone who's job is FAR from being over!  The infamous Mr. Dave McGillivray!
For those of you who are not familiar with the name, Dave McGillivray is the director of the Boston Marathon.  Not only does he make one of the biggest marathons in the world run smoothly, he is also a philanthropist, motivational speaker, and veteran distance runner himself.  He even runs the marathon course each year once the race is over!

He is hosting a one-of-a-kind interactive video chat for runners and those who love running in an effort to raise money for 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. Martin's message resonated with the hearts of the world and his foundation seeks to continue this message.

 A donation of any size to the foundation gains the contributor entry into the video chat, which will take place on April 4th at 12 pm EST, and the opportunity to ask McGillivray questions prior to the event or live during the event.  In his talk, he 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.  Basically you are getting the opportunity to not only contribute to an amazing cause but you also get to pick the brain of one of the greats in the running field!!  You can read more about the event here.

I am so excited to be a part of this amazing event which can unite so many of us around a great cause and running event!  I am also happy to extend complimentary access to this chat to the first 100 of my readers.  Just enter the code FANCYNANCY when you register.  You can always donate but this something Wizeo is extending to you!  In addition, anyone who registers using this code, Wizeo is promising to donate $10 to the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation.  Amazing!

So my question is...who's joining me?  And....what would you ask Dave?
