Boston Marathon Director Dave McGillivray to Speak at Lawrence Academy

Dave McGillivray

On Sunday, June 2, Boston Marathon Director Dave McGillivray will add one more audience to the 1,900 he has already addressed as a motivational speaker. He will begin speaking in the Richardson-Mees Performing Arts Center on the campus of Lawrence Academy at 6 PM. The event is free and open to the public, and free parking is available.

A veteran of 156 marathons, McGillivray began with a dream most would consider modest: He wanted to be an athlete. His rise to national prominence began when he ran across the country to raise money for the Jimmy Fund in 1978. His story, however, begins at the playgrounds and in the sports he played that place a premium on strength, size, and speed.

McGillivray draws from a deep well of experiences and many accomplishments as a runner and businessman to deliver messages that audiences of all ages find uplifting, inspiring, and invaluable in helping them achieve their own goals regardless of their interests.
