The Story

 

Hi! My name is Alice and I am a six-month-old pug. My human is running the Boston Marathon this year and because I’m such a loyal pal, I want to train for a marathon too! She told me that only the really fast runners qualify for marathons and the slow pokes (like me!) get their bib by fundraising for a non-profit. So while training, I will be raising money and awareness for a totally paw-some group - the Pug Rescue of New England!

Now for anyone who knows me or knows about the body type of a pug (short legs, squished face, rolls like the Pillsbury Doughboy), you know that running 26.2 miles is a simply ludicrous thought. That’s why I’ve set a much more reasonable goal for myself; I’ll be running a .262 mile marathon. 
 
A lot of people don’t think a pug can run a marathon. But I think I’m a true underdog story! I’ve been working like a dog to get fit and training can be pretty ruff sometimes. So please consider doing your part to support me and my journey by donating to my Dream. All money I raise will go towards bettering the lives of the adorable underdogs over at PRoNE

I've been training almost every day and am working hard, so please support me and my journey by donating to my Dream and helping raise money for PRoNe.

Pug Rescue of New England's Mission


http://www.pugrescueofnewengland.org

Pug Rescue of New England (PRoNE) is a non-profit 501(c)(3), volunteer foster home based rescue organization. Our mission is simple: we find homes for abandoned and surrendered pugs in the six New England states. Our pugs are up-to-date on shots and spayed or neutered prior to being placed in a forever home. 

PRoNE is supported by adoption fees, donations and funds raised through our special events (PRoNE 5K in June and our Pug Social, our annual pug social held in Spencer, Ma each October).
